10. The translation trade 10 years on


In this Scandinavian Newsletter we have examined the situation ten years on - not only in the Netherlands but also in a number of other European countries.; We have spoken to publishers, literary agents, booksellers and trasnlators and asked them what has changed over the last ten years, and what could have caused it. We can already reveal that the current picture is very positive - literature from Scandinavia not only appeals to publishers now, but also to readers.
