The EST Translation Committee received three proposals for the 2016 EST Translation Prize and would like to thank all the candidates for submitting their proposals. However, even with a deadline extended to September 1st, the number of proposals remained very low and the Translation Committee therefore encourages EST members to think from now on about a project for the 2017 edition.
The project that was ranked first was submitted by a team of professors of the St Petersburg State University, Department of Translation Studies: Dr. Andrey Achkasov, professor and director of the Translation Laboratory, Dr. Tamara Kazakova, professor and supervisor of the Laboratory of Experimental Translation Studies, and Dr. Irina Lekomtseva, associate professor.
Their proposal entails the translation from English into Russian of Anthony Pym’s Exploring Translation Theories (Routledge 2010, 2014).
Although all three proposals had merit and were solid projects, Professor Achkasov team’s project was selected for its academic importance and its potential for great impact for Russian and possibly Slavic Translation Studies.
