Project

We are four translators who will work on the translation of contemporary Catalan poetry to Hungarian. We would like to put together a lively, flavorous collection of young Catalan poets' works (approx. 7-8) and publish it in Hungary. We have a vice-versa project too, we arrive to Olot with a bunch of Hungarian poetry in hand translated to Catalan and in the workshops of Olot we would like to polish the final versions together with the poets in person who will pay visit, each for a day or two.
