Translation grant programme

Übersetzen – © www.colourbox.comThe Goethe-Institut’s translation grant programme “Translations of German books into other languages” provides support to non-German publishers with the publication of translated German titles.

The programme 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.

    Litrix.de – Online Portal and Translation Program

    Litrix – © Litrix Special-focus language for 2012-2014: Russian

    Litrix.de presents new publications from the German book market which are selected by a jury of critics on a regular basis.
    Information on these books is provided on our portal in the form of

    • book reviews by well-known literary critics,
    • sample passages (orginal text and in translation),
    • details on authors and publishers
    in German, English and in a special-focus language, which changes regulary.
    Our goal is to provide an opportunity for interested readers, publishers and translators abroad to gain an immediate impression of the state of contemporary German literature.

    What makes Litrix.de unique: we offer a Translation Promotion Program which alternates the focus language biennially

    2012-2014 Russian (current focus)
    2009-2011 Spanish (Hispanic America / Argentina)
    2007-2008 Portuguese (Brazil)
    2005-2006 Chinese
    2004-2005 Arabic

    Here you will find a list of books that have been published within the framework of our translation grant program.

    Apart from offering information and translation grants, Litrix.de also organizes and runs further-training courses for literary translators, and helps forge networks between the German and international publishing scene.
