Faculty Grants for Translation

LACS invites applications from UM faculty for grants of up to $2500 to support translation of published scholarship by UM researchers into Portuguese, Spanish and other Latin American Languages.  Proposals will also be accepted for translation of texts from Portuguese or Spanish into English to support teaching on the region or research collaborations.  LACS will retain non-exclusive rights to publish these translations and will publish them as open access digital resources through our partnership with MPublishing. 

Applications should include:  the complete original citation of the article, article abstract, word count, and estimated cost.  Proposal must also include a release form signed by the rights holder (unless you have retained translation rights, these usually belong to the journal or press of first publication).   Queries and applications should be sent to LACS with the subject line "Translation."
