Creative Europe publishes call to support literary translations
Individual organisations or members of consortia can apply for the call for proposals to support the circulation of European literary works.
With a budget of €5 million, this call will support projects that will translate, publish, distribute, promote a package of minimum 5 works of fiction (novels, poetry, comics etc.).
The deadline for application is 7 March 2023 (original deadline: 21 February 2023).
Interested organisations can apply as an individual applicant or as member of a consortium of a minimum of 2 eligible organisations.
Applicants can apply with projects of different sizes with a different ceiling for the number of books translated and funding received
small-scale projects: Projects proposing translation of up to 10 different books can receive up to €100,000
medium-scale : Projects proposing translation of up to 20 different books can receive up to €200,000
large scale : Projects proposing translation of at least 21 different books can receive up to €300,000
Considering the exceptional circumstances of the Russian war on Ukraine, projects with the objective of providing European or Ukrainian books in Ukrainian language to Ukrainian refugees and displaced people will be encouraged. In this regard, the printing, distribution and promotion of European or Ukrainian works of fiction in Ukrainian will be eligible. These projects should still satisfy the general eligibility conditions and include at least 5 translations.
