East Translates East Program
East Translates East program of the Next Page Foundation started in 2004 and builds upon the achievements of the Open Society Institute East Translates East Project which to date has supported hundreds of translations between languages of Eastern Europe.
In 2005 the program will provide two types of funds: A. “promotion grants” will provide support for the promotion of East European translations within the country of translation; B. “translation grants” will cover part of the expenses related to the translation and publication of books originally published in one of the languages of the eligible countries (see below).
General requirements for both types of grants (translation and promotion):
Applicants and translations from/into the languages of the following countries are eligible to apply:
Application forms and detailed information about the grant competition regulations can be found on the web site of the Next Page Foundation – www.npage.org
