And a Reminder about Submitting Books for the BTBA
Following up on the earlier post about the updated Translation Databases, I just wanted to encourage all translators, authors, and publishers to send copies of your eligible translations to all the Best Translated Book Award judges to ensure that all these titles are considered for this year’s awards.
All original translations of fiction and poetry (by “original” I mean, never before available in English in any form) published in the U.S. between December 1, 2009 and November 30, 2010 are eligible. Our judges are out reading as many books as they can get their hands on, in whatever way possible, so you don’t have to send them copies, but it does make the process that much easier and guarantees that your title(s) will be evaluated.
Let me know if you have any questions, concerns, etc.
