For his translation of Antal Szerb’s novel The Traveler, he was awarded the Füst Milán Prize from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences; and for his steadfast commitment to translating, publishing, and teaching Hungarian literature in a world language, he was awarded the Pro Cultura Hungarica Medal from the Republic of Hungary.
