Both publishers and translators are eligible for these grants, which support the translation of Finnish literature into foreign languages and the translation of international literature into Finnish.

The online Grants Wizard, accessible at, allows prospective applicants to check their eligibility for various grants. The site also lists previous grant recipients. FILI supports hundreds of translation and printing projects annually with roughly 600,000 euros.

FILI’s online grant application is available here.
