Oliver Latsch is a translator.


The Oliver Latsch Literary Agency has been in operation since 1998. Since their move to Los Angeles in 2008 they have been operating under the name LatschLit, Inc. After having successfully placed Cornelia Funke’s books in the English speaking market and having sold her rights into 53 languages in 49 countries, we are now bringing our experience and understanding in the world of translation rights to more authors and publishers.

We are looking for extraordinary works of fiction or non-fiction for all ages. Our aim is to carefully introduce authors to readers worldwide, especially in the English speaking countries, in Germany, and in Scandinavia.

We also perform literary and commercial translations, from German to English and English to German. Oliver’s literary translations have been published in the UK and the US and have received awards and nominations.


Here is a list of the authors whose books he has translated:
