Languages

We’re on a mission to highlight the vast diversity of children’s and YA books in translation, as well as the world of books available for translation into English.

These are the languages so far mentioned on this blog (not always in the context of translations into English) and where available links to other resources.

If you don’t see your language here and you would like to help share your language community’s children’s literature, please write for us!
