The Goethe-Institut’s grant programme Translations of German Books into Other Languages supports non-German publishers in publishing German-language literature. The programme supports the translation of current works of contemporary literature, literature for children and young people, comics and graphic novels as well as important academic titles and non-fiction works.

The programme serves cultural policy goals and is an important guiding instrument for cultural and educational foreign policy. 

In the nearly 50 years of its existence, the programme has provided financial support for the publication of approximately 6,000 books in 45 languages.
