UK translated children’s fiction promotion releases shortlist

In the UK, BookTrust has released the shortlist for its inaugural children’s books in translation project, In Other Words.

The promotion, which was launched last year, is designed to promote the translation and UK publication of outstanding children’s literature from around the world.

The judges have selected eight titles, which have been partially translated for UK publishers to review. English language rights are available to buy for each of the titles and a marketing bursary of £1500 (A$2412) is available to support their UK publication.

Four Honour Titles will be announced at a reception at the Bologna Book Fair on 4 April.
