About Litrix.de

Litrix.de - Online Portal and Translation Programme
Special-focus area 2015-2018: the Arabic world

Litrix.de presents new publications from the German book market which are selected by a jury of critics on a regular basis. Information on these books is provided on our portal in the form of
• book reviews by well-known literary critics,
• sample passages
• details on authors and publishers
in German, English and the current special-focus language.
Our goal is to provide an opportunity for interested readers, publishers and translators abroad to gain a direct, unmediated impression of the state of contemporary German literature.
What makes Litrix.de unique is its Translation Grant Programme, which focuses on a single language for several years at a time.
