Forms, Refunds and other documents
Following the cooperation agreement between the Directorate-General for Books, Archives and Libraries (DGLAB) and Camões, Institute for Cooperation and Language (Camões, I.P.) which establishes a partnership to promote the shared purpose of promoting Portuguese literature abroad, both institutions have created a funding programme (LATE) to support translation and publication abroad. The rules for applying are available in Portuguese, English, Spanish, French, Chinese and Arabic.
The funding programme is created to promote the translation and the publication abroad of works written in Portuguese by Portuguese authors or by authors from the Portuguese-speaking African countries (Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe) and from East Timor. Grants are given to the publishers – paying a part of the translation and/or the publication costs – and also directly to the translators.
The direct beneficiaries of this Funding Programme are all the publishing houses who commit to publishing and distributing, on an international level, works by eligible authors.
Furthermore, this Funding Programme also establishes that a special support will be given to works included in the list of Reference Books from Portuguese Literature (PDF), selected by a Technical Committee formed by representatives from the DGLAB, the Camões I.P., the Portuguese Association of Writers (Associação Portuguesa de Escritores) and the Lusitanistas’ Association (Associação Internacional de Lusitanistas). In these cases, the publisher can also expect the purchase of some copies.
Applications must be submitted by email or sent by post to:

The publisher is asked to acknowledge the financial support by printing the following inscription along with the logos: Funded by the DGLAB/Culture and the Camões, IP – Portugal.
Send five copies of the translated work to the funding bodies.
The unjustified failure to comply with the obligations arising from the Rules and from the Agreement that has been signed implies the cancellation of the subsidy that was granted and the restitution of the amounts received. The Publisher may further be barred for a period of three years from submitting applications for the same Funding.
