At the beginning of this year I started translating articles from English to German for the very noble initiative and German news platform JournAfrica!. Their ambition: To engage for new narratives of Africa and challenge old images commonly known as western stereotypes.

So far I’ve translated six or so articles for JournAfrica! And I need to say, that I’m very happy about the co-operation. JournAfrica’s! contributions are well chosen and they really introduce new perspectives. Every article I translate helps me discovering something that I hadn’t known about before.

You can find my recent translation of Femi Akomolafe’s article “You cannot kill ideas” about Thomas Sankara by clicking here.
