Now in its third year, the Harvill Secker Young Translators’ Prize aims to recognise the achievements of young translators at the start of their careers. It is an annual prize, which focuses on a different language each year. This year’s chosen language is Chinese, and the prize will centre on the short story ‘The Wig’ by Han Dong. The winner’s name will be announced at an evening reception on Friday 5th October 2012 as part of the International Translation Day at King’s Place, London N1.
Harvill Secker is proud to announce an ongoing partnership with the British Centre for Literary Translation. The winner will participate in the BCLT’s mentorship scheme, working alongside renowned Chinese to English translator Nicky Harman. The winning translator will also be invited to participate in Crossing Border festival in November 2012.
