Publishers from outside finland

FILI has five application programmes for translation grants and four for production grants, through which we award over €600,000 in grants each year. FILI also awards travel grants to translators, promotional grants for event organisers abroad and sample translation grants for translators as well as publishers in Finland and abroad.

FILI supports Finnish publishers and literary agencies in their literary export work.

Publishers from outside Finland can apply to FILI for translation grants to support book translations and for production grants to support the publication of children’s books, comics and graphic novels. Publishers abroad can also apply for promotional grants to help market the translated books they are publishing. Promotional grants cover the travel costs of Finnish authors.

FILI grants


FILI invites publishers from abroad to Finland for Editors’ Week events. Around 2 or 3 such events are held each year.

FILI also takes part in international publishing trade fairs, where we are happy to meet with publishers from all over the world with an interest in Finnish literature.
