Litrix.de presents new publications from the German book market which are selected by a jury of critics on a regular basis. Information on these books is provided on our portal in the form of

  • book reviews by well-known literary critics,
  • sample passages (the original text and in translation),
  • details on authors and publishers

in German, English and in the special-focus language, which changes regulary.

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for interested readers, publishers and translators abroad to gain an immediate impression of the state of contemporary German literature.

What makes Litrix.de unique is its Translation Grant Programme, which focuses on a single language for several years at a time.

Special-focus languages:
2005-2006: Chinese

2007-2008: Portuguese (Brazil)

2009-2011: Spanish (Hispanic America / Argentina)

2012-2014: Russian

2015-2018: Arab World
