2014 Highlights: Mr Schwob arrives in Wales
On World Book Day 2014 Mr Schwob started talking about his favourite modern classics not only in Catalan, Dutch, English and Polish but also in Welsh.
The Schwob website presents modern classics, cult books and must-reads that have not yet been widely translated. The search is supported by a large network of translators, publishing houses, festivals and literature foundations including Wales Literature Exchange who suggest titles and contribute sample translations, presented online with background articles and the possibility of purchasing the book.
Schwob pitches titles to publishers likely to be interested in purchasing translation rights and offers them information about funding. It also brings the published translations to the attention of readers - in cooperation with publishers, magazines, bookstores and libraries.
