The proportion of mutual translations of Slovenian and Macedonian children'spoetry comparedto translations of children'sprose and drama is also shown. In the second part, the rare book translations of Slovenian children'spoetry into Macedonian and Macedonian into Slovenian published after 2000 are analysed using a functional approach.
