Translators Hanneke Mattaar (Armenian), Jacklyn Jiang (Chinese), Susan Massotty (English), Philippe Noble (French) and Diego Puls (Spanish) will participate in the workshop.

The complete works of Anne Frank will be published in China for the first time in a translation by Jacklyn Jiang. The translation from Dutch into Complex Chinese will be published by Penguin Random House North Asia. Anna Maria (Hanneke) Mattaar is currently working on a translation of Anne Frank’s diary, directly from Dutch into Armenian, which will be published by Vernatun Media.
