The EU’s new Creative Europe programme (formerly the ‘Culture 2007-2013’ programme) offers funding opportunities for the translation of European fiction. The maximum grant available is EUR 100 000, for the translation of 3 to 10 books. There is also (in 2014 and 2016) the opportunity to apply for ‘framework’ agreements for the translation of 5-10 books a year for 3-4 years, which is up to EUR 100 000 a year. The aim of this funding strand is to ‘promote the transnational circulation of high-quality literary works in the European Union and beyond and to reach new audiences’.
The call will be announced in November and the application form will then be available online. You use the Literary Translation eForm to apply, which is available on the Executive Agency website once you register your organisation/company for a so-called PIC-code.
