Results of the first round of 2018 translation grants from the Czech Ministry of Culture

The Ministry has allocated more than €500,000 for new translations of Czech literature.


Every year, the Czech Ministry of Culture awards grants to support the translation and publication of Czech literature abroad. There are two deadlines: on 15th April and 15th November.

The complete list of supported translations and the application form for 2018/2019 can be found here. The allocation of €538,000 is a dramatic increase over last year, when foreign publishers received €214,000 in the first round. This increase in financial support is connected with the Ministry of Culture’s new grant programme, which covers copyright costs, printing, design, promotion and excerpt translations, as well as translation costs. More information about the new grant programme can be found here. The next deadline for translation grants is on 15th April, 2018.
