To celebrate International Translation Day, the Portuguese Translators’ Association (APT (http://www NULL.apt NULL.pt/)) awarded two literary translation prizes to two translators who employed their talent and sensitivity to produce new translations of two of the greatest works of literature: James Joyce’s Ulysses (translated by Jorge Vaz de Carvalho) and Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities (translated by Paulo Faria).
