Last week I announced “Promising Translators 2018”, Self Taught Japanese’s first ever translation contest, which involves translating a few pages of Japanese fiction into English. The winner will receive a monetary prize, and there be other prizes given as well.
This post is a quick reminder for those who are interested that there are three weeks left before the deadline. Since only 2-5 pages is needed, you still have time to start searching for something to translate as well as for the translation itself.
Please see this post for more information about the contest. Two key points are that it is targeting non-professional translators and there is no entry fee.
For those who are planning to participate, feel free to send me a pre-registration email (to “selftaughtjapanese.contests [at] gmail.com”) so I can send you an email reminder as the final submission date approaches. You don’t need to say what you are translating yet.
