Translators starting out in the profession are invited to apply for a German-Swedish workshop in the framework of the Fabrique européenne des traducteurs programme.
The mentoring-based event consists of two linked workshops: the first in October 2013 at the Baltic Centre for Writers and Translators in Visby, Sweden; the second in November 2013 at Translation House Looren in Wernetshausen, Switzerland.
Workshop places will be awarded to three young translators from Swedish into German and three from German into Swedish. Applications are made on the basis of your current translation project, and must be submitted by May 15, 2013.
The program supports a new generation of translators in six language combinations. It is part funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme.
