One of the prizes awarded annually is for the work of a translator (2019 winner: Dolores Udina) and the other is for the best translation published in 2019 (Memoirs of a Polar Bear, by Yoko Tawada). The objective of this prize is to ‘distinguish the translation of a literary work into Spanish or any of the language of Spain which, according to the judgement of the specialists who make up the jury, has turned out to be outstanding among those edited for the first time last year. The jury praised the quality of the translation as such: ‘[It is] the translation of a complex original, written in German but full of the Japanese structures that brings us close to a profoundly unique voice and narrative world, translated into faithfully, wisely and with great charisma into Spanish.’ She is an example to follow.

The 25th anniversary of the implementation of translation studies a University of Salamanca coincides with the celebration of the eighth centenary of our institution, which is a perfect motivation to hold a meeting where translation specialists reflect on the future of our discipline. In an increasingly globalized world where human interactions are conditioned by the intervention of sophisticated technological tools, it is essential to look ahead and discuss about the ways through which translation will pass through. Our 8th centenary is an excellent moment to feel proud of our past, but also to start shaping our future. Translation and Interpretation absorbs the best of our university traditions and knowledge: the humanities in general and the study of languages in particular. They also project themselves towards the future, carrying out a fundamental task of linguistic and cultural mediation in a genuinely interdisciplinary framework. For more information:
