FIT has an international translation prize designed to promote the translation of non-fiction literature, improve the quality thereof and draw attention to the role of translators in bringing the peoples of the world closer together in terms of culture. The prize is sponsored by a generous donation from the Norwegian Association of Non-Fiction Writers and Translators (NFF), and is financed by copyright revenues.
