Translation: Order dated December 3rd 2018 which establishes the Funding Rules for awarding grants for the Galician book sector

Order dated December 3rd 2018, which establishes the Funding Rules for awarding grants for the Galician book sector, on a competitive basis, regarding the translation of works originally published in Galician into other languages and the translation of works published originally in other languages into Galician, as well as the publication and the launch of its Call for the year 2019

In accordance with the specific functions assigned by the competency framework, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Galician Government (Xunta de Galicia) is responsible for promoting the cultural enrichment of Galician society and making its materials available for personal development within the scope of creation, thought, technique, leisure or any other in which people can express themselves, form or transform their essential perception of the world in which they live.

Likewise, it is the responsibility of this Ministry to promote the dissemination of the intellectual and creative production of Galicia in other cultures and, at the same time, to facilitate access to the texts originally produced in other languages and countries to Galician citizens, in order to contribute to the cultural exchange and the configuration of a plural and integrated society.

It is also the responsibility of the Ministry to support publishing production and the editing of works that are of general interest for the Autonomous Community of Galicia.

For this reason, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, within the scope of its responsibilities, in the use of the powers conferred upon it, and in accordance with the provisions under Law 9/2007 dated 13 June, on support grants in Galicia, establishes funding to support the Galician book sector, aimed at translating works originally published in Galician into other languages and translating works published originally in other languages into Galician, so that meaningful texts produced abroad can be found in our community and in our language, while at the same time, our authors have channels through which to export their production. Likewise, the editing of these translated books is subsidised as a necessary measure to achieve the ultimate goal of publishing and marketing books, and thus contribute to the enrichment of the Galician bibliographic heritage.

In the performance of these responsibilities, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism wants to establish an instrument under this Order that, in accordance with current legal regulations, sets the guidelines for distribution, according to the criteria of publicity, objectivity and equal rights, of the resources allocated to book publishing, in line with the provisions under Law 9/2007 dated 13 June, on support grants in Galicia.
This Order falls under Article 25.1.a) of Decree 11/2009 dated 8 January, which approves the regulation of Law 9/2007 dated 13 June, on support grants in Galicia, as a preliminary expense report, and there is sufficient and adequate credit provided in the draft budget of the Autonomous Community of Galicia for the fiscal year 2019.

By virtue of the above, in the exercise of the powers conferred upon this Ministry under Article 34 of Law 1/1983 dated 22 February, governing the Galician Government and its Presidency, amended partially by Law 11/1988 dated 20 October,

5. The beneficiaries must comply with the advertising requirements established under Article 18 of Law 38/2003 dated 17 November, General Subsidies Act, amended by Article 30 of Law 15/2014 dated 16 September, on streamlining the public sector and other measures of administrative reform.
