English PEN has announced the latest recipients of PEN Translates award, along with increased opportunities for publishers seeking funding.
In future UK publishers with a turnover of under £500,000 p.a. will be eligible to apply for 100% of the translation costs of a book acquired from another language. Previously, only publishers with a turnover of under £100,000 p.a. were able to apply for this maximum level of grant. All other publishers could apply for up to 75% of a book’s translation costs.
