The Translation in Motion consortium of translation residencies invites applications by literary translators working from or into the languages of the countries of the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia).
Translation in Motion is a programme that aims to enrich and intensify the flow of translated literature in contemporary Europe, and specifically between the Western Balkans countries and the EU member states.
Recognizing that literary translators are influential and driven ambassadors of cultural dialogue, this programme will provide international mobility and professional development.
The residencies offer translators time for focused creative work on a literary translation project, the opportunity to immerse themselves in the source language of their translation and carry out research, and to raise their visibility by networking with the local literary sector and presenting their work to local audiences.
The residencies are offered by a range of host organizations. We welcome proposals from literary translators working from or into the languages of the countries of the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia). Depending on the language combination and host organization, eligible translators should be citizens of any EU country or any country of the Western Balkans.
During their residency, translators are expected to work intensively on the literary translation project with which they applied for the programme, to take part in events or activities of the host organization, and to network with colleagues and with other residents.
The host organizations offer free accommodation in the residency center, a travel grant and a monthly fellowship to cover living expenses.
Application deadline: April 30 2021
