International Conference of Translators of Literature in German

25 translators of literature in German are to take part in a week-long conference.

The conference includes a trip to the Leipzig Book Fair and a presentation in its Translation Centre. Travel expenses will be paid, along with hotel accommodation in Berlin and Leipzig for those who require it.
