2019/2020 Focus language: Greek
As well as the information service provided by our literature portal, Litrix.de also offers support for translation projects within the context of its cyclical two-year focus on a specific language and region. Our special focus for 2019 and 2020 is Greece.
This support is available exclusively for books that are showcased in Greek at Litrix.de.
Our translation grant programme is targeted at those regions selected for special focus, deploying specific initiatives aimed at fostering the transfer of literature and creating enduring mechanisms that facilitate cultural interchange. To minimise the financial risks that publishers in the special-focus region might encounter, the Litrix.de programme offers not only a grant covering the costs of translation, but also a contribution towards the cost of purchasing the publishing rights.
Information about eligibility criteria can be found here.
The targeted support of translations in the special-focus language is intended to complement the Goethe-Institut’s existing range of support mechanisms.
