Delos solicits and welcomes translations from literature in any language into English—for practical reasons "any" language means those taught and researched at major universities in the United States.

Shorter pieces—five to fifteen pages in length—are preferred. For translations of poetry, we will print the original poem on a facing page, with the original author's permission.

We are also happy to consider articles about the translation process or specific problems in translation. Discussions should be accompanied by examples of source texts and translations or tentative translations. Articles should be between 3,000 and 6,000 words in length and formatted using the Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition. The article should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 250 words.

Reviews of notable translations or books about translation will also be considered.
