Presentation of the 2019 Übersetzerbarke (“Translators’ Barque”)

Price of the German Literary Translators’ Association (VdÜ)

Every year, the German Literary Translators’ Association recognises individuals and institutions that have made an outstanding contribution in the field of translation. The 2019 Translators’ Barque goes to the bookshop Buchhandlung Christiansen in Hamburg. For many years, Christiansen has provided a stage for literary translations through regular, always well-attended translation events, awakening – and keeping awake – the reading public’s interest in translations.
