The founders of the Pericles Foundation are fluent in fourteen languages between them, and are experienced with managing translation work. We believe that in today’s publishing environment there are too many excellent new books of value in other languages never see the light of day in English. We take a global approach and make it our mission to bring these unknown works into the English language, to give the book and its author respect and reach they truly deserve.
In the Translation programme, we seek out good new works of non-fiction, that are intellectually rigorous, engaging and of general interest. Similar to the New Talent programme, we are open to a wide range of works in the humanities and social sciences.
Our first project is currently under development.
If you are an author of a book published in your native language and would like it to be considered for the Translation programme, please get in touch and introduce yourself.
If you are a translator and would like to be added to our list of translators, please get in touch and introduce yourself.
