Summary/Abstract: The author presents TransStar Europe, a new European project and its part „Translating Cube: Six Sides of European Literature and Translation“ from her own perspective like participant in the years 2013-2015. This project has been funded by the EU program called „Lifelong Learning“ and with support from the European Commission. It placed its focus on smaller Central- and Southeastern languages, its literatures and cultures and involved students and young professionals of Austria, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia, Switzerland and Ukraine who got the opportunity to become acquainted with literary translation and the basics of European cultural management. They have worked individually, in groups, in tandems and each participant had received mentoring on his translations – e.g. from Sława Lisiecka. The result is among other things an anthology containing translated texts of contemporary German-speaking literature. TransStar Europe participants have gained new knowledge thanks to seminars, discussions, cultural events, evenings with authors and the presence at the Leipzig Book Fair.
