Deadline: August 21, 2014
Dalkey Archive Press, a leading publisher of literature in translation, now invites applications for the fall session of its online Certificate in Applied Literary Translation, which is offered in collaboration with the Center for Translation Studies at the University of Illinois.
Designed to help young translators who have completed their formal education and are ready to take the next step in their careers, the program is open equally to native and non-native speakers of English. It will provide extensive experience in both translation and publishing, and training in how to work with editors to complete a publishable translation.
The expected outcome of the program is that Dalkey Archive will publish the participants’ first book-length translation and thus far, 26 participants of the previous sessions have had their translations published or are currently working to complete them.
The deadline for applications is August 21, 2014. The start date of the program is September 22, with the duration of 12 weeks.
