Support for translation

The objective of the agreement is to help increase the amount of quality literature published in Nordic languages other than the original language of publication. Anchoring the agreement with national centres for literature and their own extensive national and international networks ensures a wider distribution of the translated works.

An agreement to support translation of Nordic literature

The Art and Culture Programme of the Nordic Council of Ministers has appropriated an annual sum for the translation of literature from one Nordic language to another. The support agreement covers the years 2007-2009.

The agreement on translation support is administered by NORLA together with other national centres of literature.
