Martin Schwartz - Playwright, Translator, Cultural Advocate


I am an experienced literary translator (German-English) of a variety of different kinds of text, with an emphasis on stage and screen.


Recent translations include the subtitles for the US festival premiere of the 1970s Swiss film noir THE FALL for the San Francisco Film Society; portions of the novel IMMERWAHR for use in the film HABER; and a variety of stage versions of JMR Lenz's plays (some forthcoming from Exit Press).
