The winners of the 2017 Emerging Translator Mentorship Programme were announced at the British Library on Friday 30 September as part of International Translation Day:
The winners were matched up with experienced translators for a six-month period during which they worked together on practical translation projects, developing their craft through working on a chosen text or texts. The mentor acted as an adviser to the mentee on aspects of life as a professional translator; such as time management, meeting deadlines, managing finances and understanding contracts, and as an advocate for their mentee with publishers in search of literary translators.
Below you can read the results of their work together.
