Transparent translation from English/French Canadian: Gesine Schröder and Karolin Viseneber present their translation of “Birdie”, translated jointly by the Cree author Tracey Lindberg. 

The “transparent translator” is an interactive workshop where the audience can not only look over the translator’s shoulder while working, but also get directly involved in the creative process.

The event, organized by the Weltlesebühne e.V., is a continuation of eleven years of cooperation between the WLB and the Frankfurt Central Library.


The project is part of Canada’s cultural programme as Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair. It is supported by the Government of Canada (Embassy of Canada to Germany) and the Government of Quebec.
