Special-focus language for 2012-2014: Russian

As well as the information service provided by its online magazine, also offers support for translation projects within the context of its cyclical three-year focus on a specific language and region. Our special focus for 2012-14 is Russian.

This support is available exclusively for books that are showcased in Russian at

Targeted support in regions selected for the translation promotion programme is an effective means of promoting German literature in those “emerging markets” that have recently begun to demonstrate a particular interest in German literature. This process reduces publishing risks and encourages literary transfer.

The targeted support of translations in the special-focus language is intended to complement the Goethe Institute’s existing range of support mechanisms.
