The Tarabya Translation Prize is a joint project between the German Federal Foreign Office, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey, the Goethe Institut Istanbul, the S. Fischer Stiftung, and the Robert Bosch Stiftung within the framework of the Ernst Reuter Initiative for Intercultural Dialogue and Understanding. Translators will be honored for the best translations of German literature into Turkish as well as Turkish literature into German and their extraordinary achievements in promoting intercultural exchange.

The aim of the Ernst Reuter Initiative (ERI) is to enhance German-Turkish cooperation in many fields: the arts and culture, politics and the media, the economy, science and education.
