Translation Prizes

Awarded annually, biannually or every three years, our translation prizes recognize outstanding translations from works in Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish.  

Our Translation Prizes evening is hosted every year with £17,000 presented to winning and commended translators.
