"We are scouting for people who would like to translate Latvian literature into Italian, German or Norwegian. Prior knowledge of Latvian is required. During the 5 months of the program, the participants will be working on a sample translation of a work of Latvian literature under the mentorship of an experienced translator," Latvian Literature says.
The program is free of charge and the mentors are all experienced and distinguished translators: Margherita Carbonaro (Italian), Snorre Karkkonen Svensson (Norwegian) and Sebastian Guggolz (German). The sessions will be held remotely online.
To apply, send a short motivation letter (in English or Latvian) to [email protected]
Applications are open until July 14. The program is co-funded by the State Cultural Capital Foundation of Latvia.
