During his life, Josef Wenzig translated numerous Czech poems from the first half of the 19th century. He was the translator of folk songs, poems of Kollár, Čelakovský, Štulc, Vocel, Jablonský, Erben and others. With his extensive work he tried to be a mediator between Czech and German culture. The thesis analyses individual compilations of translations, their presentation and reception, and primarily deals with the role of the translation between Czechs and Germans. The aspect of translator is also very important, because he grew up in the German family, but he took a positive stand on the Czech nation.
