In 2014 the Slovenian Association of Literary Translators founded a new award in the field of translation: the Jerman Award is an accolade given each year for the translation of a work in the humanities and social sciences into Slovenian language. It was is named after a philosopher Frane Jerman (1933–2002).

The first edition of the Jerman award got Matej Hriberšek for his translations into Slovenian of the first six books of Naturalis Historia of the Roman half-historian Pliny the Elder, and for the translation of the autobiographical work of Baron Žiga Herberstein, Gratae Posteritati. In the years to follow the award winners have been: Alenka Mercina (2016), and Bogdan Gradišnik and Branko Gradišnik (2017).
