Who can apply for a TINFO translation grant?

Playwrights, drama agencies, theatres, festivals or translators may apply for a grant. The grant will be paid directly to the translator.

Criteria

In the evaluation we emphasize following factors: the international production of the play, the translation as part of a grand project and the status of the performing theatre or festival in the target country. The international potential of the play will also be evaluated.

The TINFO translation grant is intended to support younger playwrights as well as translation of Finnish plays which have not been translated to any other languages.

The translator of a play supported by a TINFO grant must be a native speaker of the target language. Translations made by non-native speakers of the language in question may be accepted if there are sufficient grounds to support the decision.

The TINFO grant is meant for the high-quality, artistic translation of a drama text / play. The TINFO grant can even be awarded for the translation of subtitles.
