Presentation Materials

Quality information materials are crucial to presenting Slovenian literature abroad. The materials have to be diverse in scope and content and encompass all agents in the field of books with comprehensive information about authors, translators, publishers, official institutions, etc.

Bibliographies of Translations of Slovenian Authors

As part of project "Slovenia - Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt International Book Fair 2023", we are compiling a bibliography of translations of Slovenian authors into foreign languages.

The bibliography includes both translations and foreign language originals published abroad. The final bibliography will cover the period of 1991-2023. Currently, data for the period 2016-2022 is available: bibliographies of individual languages (2016-2022) and unified bibliographies (2016-2018, 2019-2022, 2016-2022). New materials will be added on a regular basis.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, please contact Peter Koritnik at peter.koritnik@jakrs.si.

Catalogues of authors, illustrators and publishers

Our presentation materials in English language range from catalogues of children's books authors, illustrators, fiction authors to directories of Slovenian publishers.
