Translation Grants
  • About
    • Every quarter, LTI Korea selects and funds translations of a wide range of Korean works including literary fiction, poetry, plays, non-fiction (humanities and social science), children’s and YA books, genre fiction and graphic novels.
    • Each application is judged on the quality of the translation and the merits of the original work.
    • From 2014, LTI Korea does not support the complete translation of the original work. For each selected project, LTI Korea initially provides a grant for the translation of a sample. An additional grant will be available for the remainder of the work once a publication contract is signed with an overseas publisher.
  • Eligibility
