Award description

The National Translation Award is an annual prize given by the American Literary Translators Association to an exceptional translation of a book-length work published in the preceding calendar year. As of 2010 the prize is worth $5,000. The award is usually given to translations of previously untranslated contemporary works or first-time translations of older works, but important re-translations have also been honored.
