You can now apply for a Translator-in-Residence Programme that we have in cooperation with FILI - Finnish Literature Exchange. FILI organises an annual Translator-in-Residence Programme in Villa Salin, Helsinki. Our guests, connected to this programme, will stay at our Satama House in Ekenäs.

The application period is from 30.10 - 12.11.2023. The residency will take place from 26.02.-17.03.2024.


The residency is open to literary translators of Finland-Swedish literature living outside Finland who have a book translation in progress. 

The Translator-in-Residence Programme includes accommodation, a stipend and partial reimbursement of travel costs. It is open to applications for translators who:

• live outside Finland

• translate literature from the Finland-Swedish language into their own mother tongue

• are working on a translation of a fiction or non-fiction book to be published


There is only space for 1 translator or a couple at a time.


The translators from Finland-Swedish selected for a stipend at our Satama House will be connected (for exchange) to the 5-6 translators who are staying at Villa Salin, located in Helsinki’s Lauttasaari district. Further opportunities for exchange can be explored (such as with the Goethe Institute in Helsinki).
