Through its programmes, the Goethe-Institut promotes the translation of German-language books from the areas of fiction, children’s and young people’s literature as well as non-fiction internationally. To date, over 6000 titles in 45 languages have been financially supported. In this way, the Goethe-Institut abroad enables access to German-language literature and promotes cultural exchange.
Moreover, the Goethe-Institut provides information on its web portals and in publications on outstanding new releases on the German book market as well as on previously-published translations from German.
