Booktrust's Translated Fiction site is worth a look -- not an RSS feed in sight, however!


Booktrust, which runs the translated fiction website, is committed to encouraging people of all ages and cultures to discover and enjoy reading. We are proud to be able to expand our work into the world of translated fiction and believe we are well placed to celebrate and broaden readers’ awareness of these amazing novels.

We also want to support the authors who wrote the books in the first place, and the publishers who have committed themselves to publishing these books in a highly competitive and increasing homogeneous market.

    That's a very interesting site - thanks for bringing it to your readers' attention. I have just read Repatriated by Adriaan Van Dis and it is hard to believe it was not written in English, such is the skill of the translator David Colmer: once again confirming that translation is an artistic skill in itself.
