The scheme is designed to enable publishers to translate works of Welsh literature from English or Welsh, in order to promote the literature and writers of Wales abroad.
Grants can cover up to 100% of the translator's fees.
Eligible costs include:
- the costs of translating Welsh literature (UK based publishers can also apply for the translation of Welsh into English)
- applying for the cost of commissioning sample translations
Applications are assessed by the Wales Literature Exchange grants panel, including assessment of a sample of the translator's work by an external reader where necessary.
The next closing date for applications is 1 March 2017.
