New UK Translation Award

I can't believe I've missed this one. If you live in the UK, translate from German and are very quick about it, you can still enter though.

The German Embassy Award for Translators is a whole new prize - which you can just go ahead and enter (by 8 January...). All you have to do is translate a short extract from Zoran Dvrenkar's rather good 2003 novel Du bist zu schnell (soon to be a film) and send it in.

The best bit is the prize: you get to come to the LCB in Berlin! In March! And go to the Leipzig Book Fair! And they give you €1000 spending money!

So put your translating caps on, UK residents, and I'll see you in March.
