The Goethe-Institut’s grant programme “Translations of German Books into Other Languages” supports non-German publishers in publishing German-language literature, with the aim of making accessible to non-German speaking readers current works of contemporary literature, literature for children and young people, 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 40 years of its existence, the programme has provided financial support for the publication of approximately 6000 books in 45 languages.
