I am actively looking for high quality Arabic children's books and Arabic youth literature with subjects which are appealing to a German speaking readership. So far only a few children's books have been translated from Arabic to German as my list Arabische Kinderbücher in deutscher Übersetzung (in German) shows. Children's books in my translation have appeared in bilingual Arabic-German editions in the German publishing house Edition Orient. Edition Orient has published one of these books in different editions: as bilingual picture books in several language combinations and as a multilingual audio book. The audio book was produced in the project Lilo Lausch of Stiftung Zuhören in cooperation with Hessischer Rundfunk (HR2 kultur) and Vodafone Stiftung Deutschland.

I am bringing together various texts on Arabic children's literature at this Web site. Have a look at its French and German pages, too.

I have a scholarly interest in Arabic children's literature and I am collecting Arabic children's and youth literature in behalf of the Gutenberg Museum Mainz and the International Youth Library Munich.

My interest in Arabic picture books for children goes back more than twenty years. In the translation of picture books, the interplay between text and illustration plays a central role. My interest in this interplay has let me recently to illustrated literature for adults: On behalf of the Goethe Institute Cairo, I have translated some comics and the main part of a graphic novel for a German-French publication project.

Moreover, I am a Ph.D. student at the Institute for Computational Linguistics in the University of the Saarland in Saarbrücken. My research interests are also in the area of logic and formal semantics of natural language. I am a physicist by training.
