Your contact to the russian publishing market

As a representative of Frankfurter Buchmesse it is aimed at Russian and German publishers, booksellers, librarians, translators and other related user groups

The German Book Information Centre Moscow is the contact point for the Russian and German book industry. Throughout the year, we work specifically with the book collections of Frankfurter Buchmesse and present them at Russian book fairs, in libraries, universities and museums. Our aim is to spark interest in modern German literature, bring German authors and their works closer to the Russian public, promote the use of the German language and contribute to the translation of German books.
The presence of the German Book Information Centre Moscow at Russian book fairs, whether with a joint German stand or an information stand, aims above all at maintaining contacts and networks and presenting new German literature. The invitation of top-class speakers from Germany and participation in specialist seminars, discussion rounds and workshops also contribute to mutual exchange.

Russian literature in German translation. A book collection of the German Book Information Centre Moscow.

We want to show Russian publishers, that there are good prospects for their authors and titles on the European book market. We want to encourage Russian editors to present their literary treasures abroad. They contribute to the transformation of literature into a universal language, the so-called Esperanto of cultural mediation and understanding. The selection of books worth translating, the translation itself, the marketing and all activities connected to it have their own laws and deserve an extensive professional discussion.

In a nutshell

The BIZ Moscow supports German and Russian publishers, authors and translators in establishing contacts in their respective partner countries.
