In my other role as a literary translator of German, I was lucky enough to get an invite from the German Book Office New York to attend their TransLab Workshop for emerging translators last September, held in NYC at the Goethe-Institut near Union Square. 

Evan Strouss of the German Book Office covered the one-day workshop for Publishing Perspectives in his article "The Task of a Translator in Today's Market."

Translating (and writing and editing) can be a solitary endeavor, so it was nice to be reminded how much one can learn from peers and masters. Vielen Dank GBO, GI NY, and Katy Derbyshire!
