The Latin America in Translation/En Traducción/Em Tradução publication series is an on-going editorial project designed to translate significant books published originally in Spanish and Portuguese, as well as other languages of Latin America and the Caribbean, in the social sciences and humanities. The goal is to make important works in Latin American scholarship available to an English-speaking public, thereby enabling select texts to reach a wider reading audience.

Bookshelf of books in Translation Series

Latin America in Translation is a joint initiative of the UNC-CH and Duke Consortium, the Duke University Press (DUP), and the University of North Carolina Press (UNCP), and is directed by an editorial committee of faculty members and editors from the two universities and their presses. Since 1993, more than 40 books have been published in the series.

The deadline for submissions for the Spring 2021 Translation Series is Friday, March 26, 2021.

Information for Translators

The Consortium does not nominate translators for the publications selected for the series. Translators are chosen by the individual Press that will publish the title in question. For information on becoming a translator for the Translation Series, please visit the Duke University Press or UNC Press websites.
