The national journal for practicing literary translators and for everyone interested in the craft of literary translation.
Regular features include translators at work, international perspectives, and the annual Sebald lecture. Each issue has a specific theme. The journal was founded by Peter Bush in 1992 and published by the British Centre for Literary Translation (BCLT), founded by W.G. Max Sebald at UEA.
In 2015 Writers’ Centre Norwich took responsibility for BCLT’s public programmes and as part of this, took over responsibility for publishing this prestigious magazine.
