Call for Expert Readers
One of the things that makes the National Translation Award (NTA) distinct is that it is the only award in the United States that includes evaluations of the translations vis-à-vis the source texts. We rely on the expertise of translators, or expert readers, who work from the original languages of the NTA-longlisted titles to provide an evaluation to our judges, which will then inform their choices of shortlisted and winning titles. Per NTA Policies and Procedures, these translators must have expertise in the source language of the text they are asked to assess, and to have published at least one book in translation.
If you are interested in being added to our list of expert readers to be called upon during the NTA judging process, please contact Communications and Awards Manager Rachael Daum at email@example.com with the language(s) you read and translate from.
