Brazilian translation grants; Hurricane Sandy help

November 8, 2012 · Leave a Comment

Yes, I am still alive and blogging! It feels like I’ve been away from my desk more than at my desk over the past few weeks but I do have a moment to post something. I hope everyone got through the storm ok. More information (en español) about how to get help, if you know anyone who needs it is here.

Via PublishNews Brazil, I found out about a program sponsored by the Biblioteca Nacional that promotes Brazilian literature abroad. Translators can apply to receive grants to translate Brazilian literature into other languages, as well as travel to and within Brazil for research for his or her translations. The article I read is here, and the application and more information is available from the Biblioteca here.

Let me know if you know of any other programs in other countries. I do know of the Dalkey Archive program, but I’m sure there are others.
