Event: Comics Translation Workshop at Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki

Translate Comics from German to Greek!

The Language Project and Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki invite you to join the wonderful world of translation!

The Comics Translation Workshop aims to familiarize participants with the translation of graphic novels and comics: from the first contact with the work to the publication of the translated comic. The workshop addresses students and professional translators who speak German and Greek fluently, love comics and graphic novels, and want to get to know the techniques of translation and lettering. The participants will translate in small groups (about 20-25 people) some excerpts of the comic “Schöne Töchter” by FLIX (Carlsen publishing house) from German into Greek. Then, the groups will present their translations and compare them with each other. Afterwards, they will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges of translating comics (cultural elements, humor, idioms, onomatopoetic, limited space). Special emphasis will be put on the lettering technique, which will be presented live with image processing.
