The applications for the Capital of Culture status 2025 have been sent. Next to eight German applicant cities Nuremberg, Gera, Hanover, Chemnitz, Hildesheim, Dresden, Magdeburg, the small city of Zittau in teh far southeast of Saxony comes across as a surprise. Her application as a cultural region in the three-country region and the east Saxon cultural area, however, is loaded with convincing cross-border and cross-cultural, truly European concept – in contrast to the cities that are culturally dominant (Dresden) or rather unexiting (Hanover).
The application had to be submitted in English, the extensive bid book was translated by Bochert Translations.

This year’s edition of the international theatre festival Theaterformen in Hannover will present, among many others, the production LOKIS by Anka Herbut, directed by Łukasz Twarkowski from Wroclaw, Poland, and Vilnius, Lithuania. Over the course of its more than three hours, the play creates an atmospheric pull, drawing the audience into a world of laconic chill in which underlying obscure aggressions can develop surprising powers. The cast investigate and re-enact unsolved murders, follows leads, considers possible scenarios – what actually happened that strange night? Eugenijus Sabaliauskas’s light design and Bogumił Misala’s music and sounds engross from the very first moment.
The translation of the supertitles from Englisch into German has be accomplished by Bochert Translations, the arrangement and production of the titles by Panthea.

How do you ride your bicycle in Iceland? Isn’t the rain a nuisance when riding throughout Ireland? Isn’t it too hot for that in Crete?
For the German-French TV station ARTE, our client produced several documentaries of people riding their bicycles on some of Europe’s most beautiful islands like Ireland, Iceland, Crete, Corsica, and Sardinia. In homey irisch restaurants, with a beer-brewing Irish emigré in Sardinia, or on mountainous Crete – we ride with people for whom bicycling is part of their way of life.
Language (mediation) services like editing consulting in the studio or transcriptions of the original soundtrack were provided by Bochert Translations.
