Aimed at practising translators at any stage of their career and at language enthusiasts who want to explore the world of literary translation, Bristol Translates offers the opportunity to work with leading professional translators to translate texts across the literary genres into English.
Bristol Translates summer school takes place entirely online, making it accessible to participants around the world. Workshop groups are limited to a maximum of 12 students. The programme features language-specific translation workshops as well as hands-on sessions about various aspects of today’s translation sector, industry talks and professional and networking sessions.
In addition to literary translators themselves, Bristol Translates speakers include publishers, agents, editors, researchers and writers. Participants have had the opportunity to pitch their project to decision-makers in publishing, and take part in exclusive competitions.
Bursaries are available for persons on a low income; these are normally for UK residents, but thanks to the generous support of the Charles Wallace India Trust, bursaries for residents of India have also been available.
