Awards and scholarships
The association recognises significant work in translation by presenting different awards and scholarships. In cooperation with the Slovenian Book Agency and several publishing houses, the association bestows the annual Sovre Award upon one or two Slovene translators for best translation. To recognise remarkable achievements in translation and life work in the area of mediating Slovene literature to foreign nations, the association presents the Lavrin Diploma. Since 2015, the Jerman Award has been bestowed for the translation of a work in the humanities and social sciences.
At the Slovene Book Fair, young and budding literary translators are honoured with the Radojka Vrančič Award. In order to support and stimulate translation work, the association also presents a number of residency and working scholarships.
