I came across a website today with reviews of recently published contemporary works by authors from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The site may be of particular interest to those of you interested in literary translation from German to English as it lists books that have been recommended by a panel of British literary experts for translation into English and tells you where to apply for translation rights.

Here's the link:

Thank you very much! Feb 7, 2008

Thank you very much, Niraja!

The link is very nice for me to know what have been published in Germany. Some publishers in my country are interested in German publication and they have been asking me for sources. With the link you provide, I am more aware of the business now. Thank you!

Although I do not do literary translations, I just wanted to commend you on sharing this with the translating community.
