The books have already been translated into the languages mentioned and are being considered for the Academy's annual translation prize. The prize for the best translation is Rs.50,000 and the translator of each book will receive an engraved copper plaque.

Hope that's clear nowicon_smile.gif

J K Bargohain translated the book 'Lokayata Darshan' (written by: Debiprasad Chattopadhyay) from original Bengali to Assamese [Assamese (??????? Ôxômiya) is the easternmost Indo-Aryan language. It is used mainly in the state of Assam in North-East India. It is also the official language of Assam. -wikipedia]. They have not mentioned the language name in the brief report.
I have read the original Bengali book and Debiprasad is one of my favourite authors.
