Lilian Pithan in conversation with Ulrich Pröfrock

Manu Larcenet, Catherine Meurisse, Lewis Trondheim, Émile Bravo: Ulrich Pröfrock has translated the greats of French comics. Since the 1990s, he has devoted himself to the search for the "mot juste", for this work is an art in itself. Sometimes the bubble is too small, sometimes the pun is too powerful. There is always a need to rebuild, to adapt, to write new poetry. Pröfrock is a master of playing with words and images. In conversation, he outlines the many facets of comic translation. 

In cooperation with the Verband literarischer Übersetzer*innen VdÜ and the Deutsche Übersetzerfonds.
