I’ve learned two things I think all of us already knew since I started this blog:
1) People are reluctant to talk about money
2) Money talks
People are understandably reluctant to talk about how much they’re being paid to translate certain projects, where the money is coming from (presumably for fear of having to share the source with other translators), and even about funding for literary translation in general.
The wheels of the literary translation industry continue to turn slowly, although I’m being kept busy enough by two interesting projects in the pipeline. In the meantime, I thought this list of available funding was too good not to share. It is a list of funding available for Banff Centre programs but looks generally useful. Enjoy!
EDIT: From now on, more sources of funding will be listed under the new “Funding” tab, above.
