In cases where an application for a translation grant is successful, the Goethe-Institut contributes part of the translation costs to the publisher, payable on publication of the translated work. It is not envisaged that the Goethe-Institut will finance the full costs of the translation or printing or editorial costs.
The program has been running for nearly 35 years, during which time we have given financial support to the publication of around 5000 books in 45 languages.
US publishers may apply for two types of translation grants:
