In cooperation with the Frankfurt Book Fair New York, Geisteswissenschaften International is inviting all aspiring translators of German to participate in a competition. The winning translations will receive prize money – first place: $1500, second place: $1000, third place: $500.

In order to take part in the competition, participants have to formally confirm that to date, they have not published more than one book-length translation of their own. By submitting a translation for the competition, translators agree to our regulations, and confirm that the text they are turning in is their work alone. This means that they completed the translation without the assistance of another person or team.

A German excerpt to translate (approx. 900 words) can be downloaded from starting October 16. Please submit your English translation to This email address is being protected from spambots.
