9th JLPP International Translation Competition

The 9th JLPP International Translation Competition to discover and foster emerging translators of contemporary Japanese literature.

In order to make Japanese literature more attractive to a wider audience, a new category for classical literature has been established in addition to the contemporary literature category.

In the 9th Translation Competition, English and German are the target languages for the contemporary literature category, while English is the target language for the classical literature category.

There are no nationality or age-related eligibility criteria. However, because the purpose of the competition is to foster emerging translators, those who have published book-length literary translations are not eligible, although translations published in magazines and/or anthologies are permissible.

Submission Period :

Saturday, June 1st – Sunday, June 30th, 2024 (JST)
