Marion Boers Prize for Translation of Work of Fiction or Non-Fiction by an Author from a SADC Member State.

The International Federation of Translators (FIT) has an international translation award designed to promote the translation of works of fiction or non—fiction originally written in an African Language by a citizen of any of the 16 SADC countries*. The objectives of the prize are to promote, foster and recognise translation of excellent quality and to draw attention to the role of translators in bringing the peoples in this region of the world closer together in terms of culture. The prize is established under the auspices of and with the financial support of the South African Translators’ Institute (SATI).
