Hungarian Books and Translations Office

The Petőfi Literary Museum hosts the work of the Hungarian Book Foundation by offering support to foreign publishers who wish to publish translations of Hungarian literature.

Its aim is to promote classical and contemporary Hungarian authors’ works (both fiction and non-fiction) abroad, to cooperate with foreign publishing houses and to take part in financing the translation costs.

To do so, the PIM – Hungarian Books & Translations Office issues calls for cooperation for foreign publishers, serves as an information centre for publishers and translators, runs foreign-language webpages about Hungarian literature and attends international book fairs.

Grant application forms are available to download from the website. More information on Hungarian literature is available at Hungarian Literature Online.
