Translation grants

The Flemish Literature Fund awards subsidies to foreign publishers to facilitate the publication abroad of high-quality fiction, creative nonfiction, and literature for children and young adults, written by Dutch-speaking Belgian authors and originally published by a Dutch or Flemish professional publishing house.

 

Foreign publishers can apply for financial assistance to cover up to 60% of the translator’s fee.

 

As the quality of the translation is of extreme importance, the FLF and its colleagues of the Dutch Foundation for Literature manage a database of acknowledged literary translators. If a publisher prefers to work with another literary translator, the quality of the translator's work is assessed first.
