Submission Guidelines
Translation Review | Past Issues

The editors of Translation Review are now accepting translations of original works accompanied by a substantive comment by the translator. Comments should focus on the reconstruction of the translation process with specific reference to choices made by the translator in the preparation of the final draft. We are particularly interested in discussions of how translators succeeded in finding solutions to problems involving no direct correspondences between cultures. Furthermore, we would like to expand studies that deal with the anthropological and cultural aspects of translation. Reviews of translations from lesser-known languages are of particular interest. We will consider manuscripts that deal with poetry, short fiction, essays, and excerpts from plays.

Additionally, articles focusing on the practical implications of translation for the teaching of literature and the humanities are of particular interest to the editors.

We accept submissions twice yearly. The deadlines are May 15 and September 15.
