Portuguese-English Literary Translators Association

PELTA is a network of literary translators from Portuguese into English. Our main aims are to promote Portuguese-language literature in English translation and to represent the community of Portuguese-English literary translators, while at the same time maintaining a register of such translators. In addition, we seek to actively promote links with Anglophone and Portuguese-language publishers and relevant cultural and literary organisations, and to encourage greater recognition and improved conditions for literary translators. PELTA is an independent, non-profit, global network run by translators, for translators.
