Marsh Award for Children's Literature in Translation
The Marsh Award for Children's Literature in Translation is a literary prize awarded in the United Kingdom since 1996 to the translator of an outstanding work of fiction for young readers translated into English.
The award is given every two years, and was administered by the National Centre for Research in Children's Literature at Roehampton University, and in 2007 was sponsored by the Marsh Christian Trust and subsidised by the Arts Council of England. From 2008 the award has been administered by the English-Speaking Union.
