On 16 April 2015 Katja Stergar from the Slovenian Book Agency (JAK) gave a presentation at the project meeting of the projects TransStar Europa and Translating Cube: Six Sides of European Literature and Translation in Ljubljana. She presented the possibilities for the co-funding of translations of literary works into Slovenian and from Slovenian. She explained that only translations of texts of high quality for which a contract with a publisher has already been signed can be co-financed and she also emphasized that in order for the publisher to get a grant the translators have to be paid adequately. She also talked about other activities of the Slovenian Book Agency.
