East-South Translation Grants

Sunday 28 September 2008

This grant scheme aimed at facilitating provision of content from Central and Eastern Europe into Arabic. This approach was consistent with Next Page’s core competency in facilitating exchange amongst “non-mainstream” languages and is particularly relevant in the current environment, where countries seek alternative models and perspectives beyond those offered by the West.

The East-South translations support from Central and Eastern Europe aimed to offer a valuable glimpse into a region that is relatively unknown to the Arab world yet straddles “East” and “West” and exemplifies the variety and diversity of approaches and stories that exist beyond the traditional confines of the Europe-Middle East division.

The program was implemented in close cooperation with Sphinx agency from Cairo and in 2008 was expanded into the Encounters program.


Contracts for 11 titles have been signed. Ultimately, 9 titles have been published. All translations into Arabic are subject to an independent quality evaluation comissioned by Next Page prior to being published.
