Taking examples from the translation of books written in German by the Austrian writer Christine Nöstlinger into Spanish and Catalan, the article shows the many differences at the time of translating cultural references into Children's Literature. The analysis shows how the problem partially lies in the concept of Children's Literature, which may not be agreed by writers, editors, and translators.
