The DLBT is online database of literature in translation, which includes both: the online-library and the online-bibliography. The project was initiated by the Dutch studies department of the University of Vienna. It has been established in cooperation with the Vienna University Library and the Vienna University Computer Center. The database was developed for the scientists and students, translators and editors, librarians and journalists.  

The DLBT offers the basis for a transnational library and bibliography of translated (and adapted) texts that shows that cultures are “in essence transgressive of borders”.
