Publishers from outside Finland

FILI supports foreign publishers interested in publishing Finnish literature in translation by e.g. providing grants and building and maintaining professional networks.

FILI grants

FILI has five application programmes for translation grants and three for production grants, through which we award over €600,000 in grants each year. 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.

FILI also awards travel grants to translators, promotional grants to help market the translated books, and sample translation grants for translators as well as publishers in Finland and abroad.
