From the Translators' Association last bulletin; this will be of interest to anyone specialising in literary projects English-German or German-English.
Translators of German to English and English to German are invited to apply for a five-day translation workshop, sponsored by the German Translation Fund, which will provide the opportunity for twelve translators (six in each direction) to present and discuss their translations-in-progress. Participants will work in depth on the submitted texts, scrutinising problematic passages and honing the translations. The workshop will take place at the Translation House Looren from 10-15 November 2008 and the deadline for applications is 15 September. Full details can be found at www.looren.net under 'workshops'. The workshop is open to translators of prose fiction, nonfiction, essays and poetry who have published at least two booklength translations or the equivalent.
