PRESS RELEASE

“At the latest since the heated and naïve debate regarding the translation of the Amanda Gorman poem, the question of who ought to translate something, when and why, and what makes for a good translation has entered the mainstream. At last, the art of translation is discussed in depth at the new festival translationale.”
taz, 09/25/2021

“Literary translation is currently receiving a level of attention it has not captured for decades. That makes sense, because between 12 and 13 percent of titles on the German book market were originally written in a different language. A new festival in Berlin now aims to present translation in a livelier way: translationale berlin.”
Cornelia Geißler, Berliner Zeitung, 09/28/2021

“Translationale Berlin: An auspicious premiere for the new festival for literary translation.”
The Translator Portal, 04.10.2021

“What a festival for literary translation might offer when it defines the terms ‘literature’ and ‘translation’ a little more broadly became evident on Friday evening. In the workshop Handverlesen, hearing and non-hearing poets met to translate one another or create new poetry together. For the translationale, several tandems presented their projects, which not only demonstrated a lot of passion, but also set aesthetically compelling accents.”
Julia Rosche, TraLaLit. magazine for translated literature, 10/06/2021
