National Translation Awards 2021

For the twenty-third year in a row, the National Translation Awards (NTA) have given awards for translated poetry and prose. Before it happens, texts are checked in a long and strict process.
The process focuses on translated texts and original texts. It aims to check the connection between translated text and the original texts.
On September 30, 2021, International Translation Day, the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA) announced the list of winners of this year’s awards in the categories of poetry and prose.
The mark focuses on the quality of the translation and finished translation from the current language to English. The special day judges of prose are: Jennifer Croft, Anton Hur and Annie Janush. The poetry will come under the wing of Sinan Antoon, Layla Benitez-James, and Sibelan Forrester.
