2020 Arabic Translation Contest

Click to view the contest details. The need for capable translators to produce accurate, fluent, even – when appropriate – artistic English renditions of Arabic literary and nonliterary texts is widely acknowledged. Addressing this need, the American Association of Teachers of Arabic has sought an effective, concrete means to encourage and recognize superior ability in the written translation of Arabic into English. To this end AATA will award four annual prizes for outstanding achievement by a student of Arabic in translating into English a significant work or portion of a work composed in Arabic.
