Announcing the 2024 Albertine Translation Fund Grantees (Session One)

Representing new trends in all categories including fiction, non-fiction, children’s books, and comics, Albertine Translation recognizes the quality of both original works and their translations. Each book listed below will receive financial support, with $2,000 reserved for publishing costs and an additional amount of $5,000 matching 50% of the translation costs. 

While most of these titles have secured an American publisher, some are waiting to find a good home. Please email us at, if you are interested in receiving more information about these titles, or would like to be connected with the translators and rights holders of the works.
