International Center for Literary Translators

International Center for Literary Translators

Description 

International center for literary translators was founded in the year 2001 in Novi Sad. The activities of the Center are taking place in Sremski Karlovci since 2003. The Center has a regional character and focuses on translating works from one Balkan literature to the languages of other Balkan literatures as well as translating literary and scientific works from any of Balkan languages (Serbian, Croatian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Macedonian, Albanian, Greek), to other languages.

Located in the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina, it offers its visitors a unique experience of tranquil working in an environment where there are six official languages (Serbian, Croatian, Hungarian, Slovakian, Ruthenian and Romanian). This multilingualism guarantees that Sremski Karlovci is the right place for the literary translators to meet and exchange ideas and thoughts. However, although the literary translators are the main focus of the Center, authors such as writers or poets are most welcome to visit.


HALMA grant holder Richard Obermayr wrote about his stay at the International Center for Literary Translators. His essay is available in the European Library of the HALMA network.

Accommodation Information
