Harvill Secker Young Translators Award

The Harvill Secker Young Translators’ Prize was launched in 2010 as part of Harvill Secker’s centenary celebrations, and it is presented in association with the British Centre for Literary Translation and Crossing Border festival. This is an annual prize, which focuses on a different language each year, with the aim of recognising the achievements of young translators at the start of their careers. The prize is open to anyone between the ages of 18 and 34, with no restriction on country of residence.

The 2014 chosen language is German, and the prize will centre on the short story ‘Der Hausfreund’ by German author Julia Franck. It is open for entries until August 1st.
