The office branch of Azerbaijan Translation Center has solemnly opened in France in order to promote Azerbaijan's national literature abroad.

One of the co-founders of Kapaz publishing house, the director of the Strasbourg representative office of the center, Nijat Kazimov, told Azertag that various publications of Azerbaijan Translation Center will be presented in France and French-speaking countries.

The office branch will contribute to the establishment of close ties with famous French writers, and promotion of Azerbaijani literature.

Notably, Kapaz publishing house has cooperated with the Azerbaijan Translation Center before the establishment of the representative office. However, the creation of a branch office strengthens the responsibility of the publisher.

"In recent months, Kapaz publishing house has been working on the book "Anthology of Azerbaijani Literature". The publication will include the stories of 27 Azerbaijani writers of the 19th century and our contemporaries. During the work on the book, we constantly maintained close ties with the Azerbaijan Translation Center and exchanged views," Kazimov said.

Founded in 2014, Azerbaijan Translation Center is an executive body which centralizes translation work, manages socio-political, scientific, technical, literary and cultural ties from the point of view of language and translation, oversees the standard of translation in the republic and improves its quality.
