Open call for literary translation residencies > Translation in Motion Programme (France, Bulgaria, Montenegro, Sweden, Macedonia, Albania, Latvia, Serbia and UK)

The Translation in Motion consortium of translation residencies invites applications by literary translators working from or into the languages of the countries of the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia).

Translation in Motion is a programme that aims to enrich and intensify the flow of translated literature in contemporary Europe, and specifically between the Western Balkans countries and the EU member states. 

Recognizing that literary translators are influential and driven ambassadors of cultural dialogue, this programme will provide international mobility and professional development. 

The residencies offer translators time for focused creative work on a literary translation project, the opportunity to immerse themselves in the source language of their translation and carry out research, and to raise their visibility by networking with the local literary sector and presenting their work to local audiences.

The residencies are offered by a range of host organizations. The organisers welcome proposals from literary translators working from or into the languages of the countries of the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia). Depending on the language combination and host organization, eligible translators should be citizens of any EU country or any country of the Western Balkans.

Applications till 30 April 2021 (check carefully the calls related to each organisation as some deadlines may be before like for Bulgaria).
