Signal Boost: nominations for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Translation Awards


The Science Fiction and Fantasy Translation Awards is looking for nominations for the year 2011. The Awards aim to reward translations from another language into English, and they’re quite possibly the only English-language awards I know of where the award is split equally between the author and the translator. They function as both a way to highlight non-Anglophone works, and to highlight the (often unrecognised) work done by translators. Both very worthy goals, and the list of nominations so far makes for a very interesting reading list, too.
