"In altre parole", annual translation competition

The “In Altre Parole” Translation Competition returns to the Bologna Children’s Book Fair for the 7th time. This year it is specifically focused on translations from Catalan and Spanish, as a tribute the Fair’s Guests Of Honour, Catalonia and Balearic Islands.


The contest is open only to italian mother-tongue translators who have published a minimum of one literary translation work, in children - and young adult literature.


The translation test along with the sign up form will be downloadable from our website starting on December 14 2016. Contestants have until January 13 2017 to submit their translation entries, which will be evalutated by a panel of specialised translators.
The winner will be announced on April 6 2017 at the Translators Cafe during the Fair. The winner will have a unique opportunity to get connected to the best children’s and teens’ publishers.


Besides being a springboard for artists and publishers, The Bologna Children’s Book Fair acts as the perfect meeting point for aspiring and professional translators from all over the world.
The Translators Centre provides a unique opportunity to meet with the top translation professionals, discuss what’s new and share experiences. The Translators Centre’s and the Translators cafe event calendar will be available soon.
