The Best Translated Book Awards Announces Fiction Longlist

Posted at 7:44AM Thursday 13 Mar 2014

American publishing traditionally publishes a smaller percentage of works in translation than other nations — meaning we have a trade imbalance of culture. The blog Three Percent, which started the Best Translated Book Awards (BTBAs) in 2007, seeks to ameliorate that by highlighting excellent literature in translation.

BTBAs are awarded for both fiction and poetry (this year's longlist has not been announced). The winning authors — and their translators — are each given a prize of $5,000.
