A handy resource for newbies in the field of literary translations:

\"The Translation Committee of PEN American Center has made available the 1999 edition of A Handbook for Literary Translators. This, the fully revised fourth edition of the Handbook, a valued information resource for translators, is now accessible free of charge on PEN\'s Web site.


The new Handbook addresses the many challenges facing translators today, including the continuing consolidation and globalization of the publishing industry and the decline in the number of translations published annually.


The PEN Translation Committee is pleased to offer this resource free of charge. Anyone with access to the World Wide Web can now obtain a copy of the Handbook directly from the PEN Web site.\"

It is in Word-format and has 22 pages
