Booktrust to promote translated fiction

From Publishing News:
Translations website
BOOKTRUST is to launch a new reader- focused website to promote translated fiction in the UK. The move is in part a response to research revealing that of 400 titles recommended in national newspapers' summer reads roundups, only 28 were translations and, of those, seven were classics. Site editor James Smith is inviting publishers who would like their titles included, or who would be willing to provide extracts, plus translators and anyone else who works to promote translated fiction in the UK and has opinions on the subject, to contact him at james.smith@book by the end of September.
You can read more about Booktrust on their website.
