About Transcript

Transcript is an online review of books and writing from around the world with a focus on European literature and its relationship with other literary scenes. Its aim is to promote quality literature in translation and to give wider circulation to material from literary publications in other languages through the medium of English, French and German.

Transcript was first published in 2002 with support from the Culture Programme of the European Union and was re-launched as part of  Literature Across Frontiers’s new website in 2013. Transcript’s archive can be found here at
