Jones translates poetry from various European languages – especially from Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian and Dutch into English, though he has also worked from Russian, Hungarian and Caribbean creoles, and into Geordie and Yorkshire dialect. Among his solo book-length translations are six collections by Ivan V. Lalić. Jones’s poetry translations have won 14 UK and international prizes, including four for earlier translations of Lalić’s work. He lives in Northumberland, and is Professor of Translation Studies at Newcastle University.
