Richard Howard and Marina Harss are finalists for French to English translation awards March 22, 2012
Earlier this month the French-American Foundation and the Florence Gould Foundation announced the finalists for their 25th Annual Translation Prize for excellence in translations of French works into English published in 2011.
We are thrilled that Richard Howard, translator of Marc Fumaroli’s When The World Spoke French, and Marina Harss, translator of Elizabeth Gille’s The Mirador: Dreamed Memories of Irène Némirovsky by Her Daughter, have been nominated for this prestigious award.
There will be one Fiction and one Non-Fiction prize presented at the annual Awards Ceremony on May 23rd, in New York. Each winning translator will receive a $10,000 cash prize funded by the Florence Gould Foundation.
