European Network for Literary Translation launched
Twenty-two literary bodies from 19 European countries have come together to launch ENLIT, the European Network for Literary Translation, reports Publishing Perspectives. Launched at the Frankfurt Book Fair, ENLIT will see cultural organisations across several European countries work together to promote literature and translation to publishers, authors, translators and other arts workers on a global scale, as well as ‘provide easier access to the many different literary voices from within and beyond Europe’s borders’. Director of international projects at the Frankfurt Book Fair Bärbel Becker said the member organisations will ‘agree to share information, set up collaborative projects, invest in research, conduct surveys and process their data, and to show a commitment to producing and distributing literary translations’.
