Call for Submissions
Translating in the 21st Century

"Translation" is a new Translation Studies journal at the University of
California Santa Barbara published every two years by the Translation
Studies Research Focus Group of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center
at UCSB.

"Translation" is now accepting submissions of poetry or short fiction
translations into English for its second issue, to be published in Fall
2007. Essays on literary translation are also welcome. Issue two will
highlight translations addressing cultures around the world—East and
West. We are particularly interested in translations from non-Western
languages, but are happy to consider all submissions.

Only unpublished translations will be accepted. The journal is
collaboratively run by graduate students and faculty, and welcomes
translations from both new and established translators. Please email a
brief bio of the translating author along with your submission to

All submissions should use current MLA formatting where required.

Poetry submissions should be limited to 3 per entrant. Poetry
translations may be to or from English and should be submitted along
with the original text for side-by-side publication.

For short fiction submissions, 7-10 pages is the preferred length.

Translators should obtain necessary permissions for translating texts
and will be expected to assist in obtaining permission for publication
of originals in the case of poetry.

Unfortunately, as a non-profit, scholarly journal, we cannot offer
payment for submissions.

Submissions will be accepted through January 10, 2007 at
