In order to evaluate your application, we need the following documents:

  • a copy of the application form
  • the volume of the work to be published either in characters (in the case of prose), in words and lines (in the case of poetry)
  • a precise calculation of the costs for production
  • a copy of the contract between the publishing company and the owner of the Estonian-language rights, signed by all parties
  • a copy of the contract between the publishing company and the translator(s), signed by all parties
  • a recent catalogue of the company’s publications (paper or digital)

Note: Traducta expects a strong engagement of the publisher of the translated text. As a result, the receipt of a grant cannot be a condition in the contract with the owner of the original rights.

  • a representative excerpt in translation (circa 20 pages of the final version)
  • a copy of the translator’s curriculum vitae
The publisher must inform Traducta in writing without delay when a project for which an application has been submitted is modified.

All documents should be submitted to the Estonian Cultural Endowment via email traducta@kulka.ee or via e-kulka or at the following address:
