NORLA’s translators hotel

APPLICATION DEADLINE for stay in September 2022: Expired (was 1 August)

NORLA started in 2014 a pilot scheme for a translators hotel for translators of Norwegian literature. The scheme has been an unconditional success and has been renewed in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

This spring (2022), we finally got the pleasure of welcoming to Oslo the translators who were originally granted a stay at NORLA’s translators hotel, in the spring of 2020. Due to the pandemic, their visits had to be postponed.
