About Us

Within the confines of the Petőfi Literary Museum (PIM), the PIM - Hungarian Books & Translations Office carries on the activities of the Hungarian Book Foundation. Its aim is to promote classical and contemporary Hungarian authors’ works (both fiction and non-ficion) abroad, to cooperate with foreign publishing houses and to take part in financing the translation costs.
To do so, the PIM – Hungarian Books & Translations Office issues calls for cooperation for foreign publishers, serves as an information centre for publishers and translators, runs foreign-language webpages about Hungarian literature and attends international book fairs.

Call for cooperation:

We accept applications by foreign-based publishing houses who intend to publish Hungarian fiction/non-fiction works that have not yet been published in the given language before.

The exact conditions and deadline for application can be found under ’For Publishers’.
The board of experts evaluating the applications consists of:
Judit Hammerstein
Zoltán Jeney
Dóra Károlyi
Ildikó Lőrinszky
