Registered OA groups and service bodies as well as small groups of interested members (where a registered group might not yet be established, for example) are eligible to receive funding to assist with translation of OA literature.

The International Publications and Translations Committee recommends translating OA literature in a certain order, starting with the OA Glossary, so that primary texts are translated first. See the full suggested list on our Guidelines: Translation page at

To apply for funding, complete the Translation Assistance Fund application or contact your region chair. The next deadline to apply is February 1, 2023.
