DELT was established in 2014 (informally as DENT: the Danish-English Network of literary Translators) as part of the remit of the inaugural Impact PhD in Danish-English Translation as awarded to Ellen Kythor, co-sponsored by University College London and Danmarks Kunstråds Litteraturudvalg (Statens Kunstfond: The Danish Arts Foundation). Ellen was Chair of DELT from its founding until the end of 2019. DELT is an independent association.
