EU support for the translation of European literature

The programme grants 2.78 million € to literary translation and will support the translation of these books into 26 different European languages.

Altogether 400 applications were submitted by European publishers asking translation support for a total of 1678 books. Of these, 91 very high quality applications from 24 countries were selected for funding with an average grant of 30.500 €. Bulgaria proved the most successful applicant country this year with 10 selected applications, followed by Spain and Hungary, each with 8.

Note that as many as 24 of the authors that have so far won the EU Prize for Literature will receive support from the Culture Programme this year to have their books translated into 13 different European languages.

The final lists are of projects proposed for funding are in this link: Projects and books proposed for selection.

All applicants participating in the call for proposals will be informed by the Executive Agency in writing about the detailed results of the evaluation of their applications.

The funding of each book depends on its eligibility as well as on the validity of both its copyright and translation contracts. Selected applicants have 15 days to provide these contracts to the Agency (in the case of the rights agreement, a letter of intent from the holder of the rights authorising the publisher to translate, print and sell his/her work is sufficient).
