Until Next Year! Be Grateful: A Short Story by Éva Veronika Kalapos Translated from the Hungarian by Timea Balogh

The 7th edition of National Translation Month was a tremendous success! And we are very grateful to all the authors, translators, and event organizers who celebrated with us, and to our 6,000+ followers on social media whom we sought to inspire and engage.

We close National Translation Month 2019 on a high note: September 30 is celebrated worldwide as International Translation Day. We’re leaving you with the frank and moving short story Be Grateful by Éva Veronika Kalapos translated from the Hungarian by Timea Balogh. It’s a compelling read that deals with issues of body image in a refreshing and refined way.

Stay tuned for translation news, collaborations, and publishing opportunities we’ll continue to post throughout the year. Join our mailing list, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. And, if you like what we’re doing, support our efforts with a small donation here. It will help us bring more literary translations to an even wider audience next year.

We hope you’ll continue to celebrate translations throughout the year. If you think of a way you’d like to celebrate NTM in 2020, drop us a line and we’ll be happy to include it in our next year calendar. The world lies open—take time to explore it. And celebrate the craft of translation in September and beyond.

—Claudia Serea & Loren Kleinman
