Resumen:   This study of images of the Western Balkans in translated children’s literature published in the period of 1990 – 2013, adds a hitherto uncharted literary terrain to the Balkanist discourses and helps shed a new and more complete light on the literary representations of the Balkans, and more precisely the Western Balkans. The study approaches translations as framing and representation sites that contest or promote stereotypes in the global literary market.
The study looks at the images embedded in the texts, and their representation in translation, including the translator’s interventions, but even more at the level of paratexts, and especially in the use of illustrations. The discussion also considers how a book is selected for translation, and how different production participants contribute in the whole process of translation, including their motivations and goals, as well as their location.
