East Translates East
Translation grants for periodicals
Thursday 15 February 2007 by Maria Velichkova
Competition held in 2006
East Translates East program of Next Page Foundation carried out a competition for translation grants for cultural periodicals. The grants cover translation costs of texts, originally written in one of the languages of Central and Eastern Europe, which are to be published in cultural journals in other countries in the region.
The core of the East Translates East program is the belief that sharing literary and intellectual achievements within Central and Eastern Europe is crucual to the region’s development. Cultural journals are seen as a medium that can sustain such exchange and that can most promptly react and reflect upon cultural changes and new social and political tendencies.
