17th century scholar Johann Makle has long been neglected by research. A New Hanau residing doctor of medicine, Makle not only edited the collected works of Johann Rudolph Glauber, but also translated several writings from Italian and French into German as well as from German into French. A biographical sketch followed by the outline of his translation work contributes to the picture of an Early Modern man of letters. The appended bibliography documents the work of a translator actively engaged in building up an Early Modern (literary) European network.
