The aim of the grant is to promote an offer of quality translations of works written in French or one of the languages of France, representative of literary and scientific diversity, to a global readership. The funds are to support publishers taking economic risks to publish quality, diversified works that are accessible to as large a readership as possible. The works in question may be published in print and/or digital format.
The grant application is made by the publisher of the original French work which has sold the rights to a foreign colleague.
