The Goldschmidt Programme for German- and French-speaking literary translators

German and French

The Georges-Arthur Goldschmidt Programme gives up-and-coming German- and French-speaking translators the chance to get to know publishing companies. This bursary programme is organised jointly by Frankfurter Buchmesse, the Franco-German Youth Office (DFJW), the society for promoting French literature abroad (BIEF) and Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council. Participants receive a monthly grant of 900 EUR.



Application deadline for the 2023 edition is 30 September 2022.


Seminars and Workshops

During 6 weeks (3 weeks in Berlin and 3 weeks in France) participants work on their translation projects in dedicated workshops, guided by two renowned literary translators. The participants also learn how to present their translation projects to publishers.



The programme encourages a lively exchange among the participants, publishers and editors by organising visits to publishing houses in Germany, France and Switzerland.
