‘So, it’s recognising new talent in the translation profession, but also those editors who take a chance on a debut and then work with them to make them better – a role we all depend on, but don’t acknowledge often enough.’
The TA First Translation Prize is an annual £2,000 prize for a debut literary translation into English. The Prize is shared between the translator and their editor.
It was established in 2017 and generously endowed by Daniel Hahn, with support from the British Council.
The TA First Translation Prize 2021 is now open for submissions until 2 August. Full eligibility criteria and conditions of entry can be found at the beginning of the entry form.
