The world of articles by Spanish authors and translators


  • Jens Best (Wikimedia Germany / German Wikipedia)
  • Cornelius Hartz (VdÜ, Translator)
  • Arturo Peral Santamaría (ACE Traductores)

Moderation: Isabel Garcia Adanez

Discussion with representatives of the German and Spanish translators' associations about the significance of Wikipedia contributions for authors and translators.

Where are the intersections?

Afterwards: small reception
