Gutekunst Prize to Daniel Clausen
Congratulations to Daniel Clausen, a Master's student, for snapping up the Gutekunst Prize for Young Translators from the German in America. This is one of those excellent awards for which under-35s pit their wits against a particular text, with the resulting translations compared in anonymous form by the judges. A good thing. Clausen gets $2500 to spend on bicycles or outdoor pursuits or hobby farming. Go to the link to download his translation.
