Have you ever read a book that was originally written in a foreign language? I bet you wondered: gosh, how did they make it into my language? It's so easy to understand, and I don't need to have a dictionary at hand to look words up and stuff.
Some of those formerly foreign books (the technical term is "translations") tell you the name of the person who did that in a prominent place - like on the cover, or maybe on the first page inside it. Sometimes you might have to look a bit harder to find out who exactly spent months labouring over the book so that you could read it. But you'll rarely, I bet, have seen photos of those notoriously limelight-shunning people (commonly known as "translators").
Well, now's your chance! love german books brings you nigh-on exclusive photos of 60 - yes, sixty! - translators out of German, into French, Finnish, Hungarian, Macedonian, Arabic, Spanish, Serbian, Swedish, English, Portuguese, Polish, Persian, Ukrainian, Thai, Hindi... and a heck of a lot of other languages you may or may not command.
Taken by Tobias Bohm, they document the recent Angry Sheep translator get-together in Berlin. Enjoy.
