Through fellowships to published translators of exceptional talent, the Arts Endowment supports projects that involve the specific translation of prose, poetry, or drama from other languages into English. For the past several years, Translation Projects have operated on a two-year cycle with fellowships in prose available one year and fellowships in poetry available the next. This year, prose, poetry, and drama all are eligible for translation.
We encourage translations of writers and of work which are insufficiently represented in English translation. All proposed projects must be for creative translations of published literary material into English. The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and value. Priority will be given to projects that involve work that has not yet been translated into English.
Competition for fellowships is extremely rigorous. Potential applicants should consider carefully whether their work will be competitive at the national level.
