Open letter published by the Romanian Club at Columbia University:

"Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you on behalf of the Romanian Cultural Institute, Bucharest. One of our purposes here is making Romanian literature known abroad, particularly in English-speaking countries. As part of this programme, our Institute is offering a three-month grant for (native) English-speaking translators with a fair knowledge of Romanian. They will be invited to Romania and given the possibility to know the country, its language, and its culture in greater detail. At the same time they will be involved in concrete translation projects together with Romanian authors and translators, and given the opportunity to improve their Romanian with the support of the teaching staff at Bucharest University.

Candidates can choose between the periods April-June and September-December for their Romanian sojourn. During this time, they will receive free accommodation and breakfast at Palace Mogosoaia, just outside Bucharest, and Euro 500 per month, plus another five hundred towards transportation costs. Ideally, they should be expected to develop and maintain an interest in translating Romanian literature into English and, to this end, keep in touch with the Institute. They will be welcomed to return in order to pursue any relevant projects they embark upon. Further information is available on our website: www.icr.ro.

Since native English speakers with a working knowledge of Romanian and the willingness to develop it with a view to making Romanian literature known abroad are difficult to find, I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions you might have as to where we could start looking for eligible candidates. In case you happen to have concrete suggestions, we'll be only too glad to consider them.


Hoping to hear from you soon, I remain

Yours faithfully,

Florin Bican"
