About Event

The EU-funded Translation in Motion project by RECIT commissioned a mapping of the literary translation residencies across Europe, including an online database3 and a study. This study aims to complement the database by classifying the collected programmes and to give more contextual information on why and how these programmes are supporting literary translators.
In 2000, several translation centres joined together to form Réseau Européen des Centres Internationaux de Traducteurs littéraires (RECIT), the European network of literary translation residencies.
Today, the network includes 141 European literary translation centres in 13 different countries. Many new translator residencies have recently been established, especially in southeastern Europe, and their concepts have diversified. The host organisation of residency programmes in cities often acts also as a literary agent2. It connects the resident with fellow literary translators, authors and publishers of the source language, and contributes to the promotion of the country’s literature.
