THE NATIONAL BOOK DEVELOPMENT BOARD CELEBRATES THE QUINCENTENNIAL ANNIVERSARY WITH A P6.86 MILLION TRANSLATION GRANT
The National Book Development Board of the Philippines (NBDB) offers translation grants to Filipino Authors and Publishers who wish to translate and publish their books to other Filipino and international languages.
In order to increase readership among Filipinos, there is an immediate need to provide mother-tongue publications available to all audiences. To enhance global competitiveness and increase the Filipino diasporic cultural footprint around the world, there is also a need to translate Filipino publications to other languages. The NBDB will support this through two programs – the National Translation Subsidy Program and the International Subsidy Program.
Applications for the 2021 cycle are due 30 May 2021. Results will be announced on 30 June 2021.
