American Translators Association's Lewis Galantière Award
Details:
The Lewis Galantière Award is bestowed biennially in even-numbered years for a distinguished book-length literary translation from any language, except German, into English. This award honors distinguished ATA founding member Lewis Galantière (1894-1977). His translations from French drama, fiction, poetry, and scholarship enriched cultural life during the middle decades of the 20th century and are still being read.

Eligibility

To be eligible for the award, the book-length literary translation must be translated from any language, except German, into English and published in the United States in 2008 or 2009. The published translation must list the translator’s name on the title page and preferably on the dust jacket. Preference will be given to published works that provide biographical information about the translator.

The translator does not have to be an ATA member; however, the translator should have a strong connection with the U.S. through citizenship or permanent residence. The nomination must be submitted by the publisher of the translated work.

Nominations

The nomination must be submitted by the publisher of the work and must include the following:

* Cover letter with complete publication information for the work being nominated, including the date of publication.
* Brief vita of the translator, including place of residence and contact information.
