Support Programs for Translation and Publishing

The Japan Foundation provides support to projects relating to translating and/or publishing Japanese works on Humanities, Social Sciences and the Arts and publishing books introducing Japanese culture written in foreign languages.
It also participates at international book fairs held overseas together with the Publishers Association for Cultural Exchange.

The Japan Foundation provides financial assistance for foreign publishers to translate and/or publish Japan-related books. The grant shall cover part of the translation cost and/or publishing cost (paper cost, plate-making cost, printing cost, binding cost, etc.).

The titles recommended in this publication are works that the Japan Foundation would also prioritize for its own support program, provided the translations are of adequate quality and appropriate publication plans are submitted.
