The Literature Translation Institute of Korea (LTI Korea), established in 2001 under the auspices of the Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, is Korea’s first and foremost cultural institution for international literary activities.
For the purpose of promoting Korean literature worldwide and expanding its global readership, we support translation and overseas publication of literary works written in Korean. We have so far funded over 900 translation projects in nearly 30 different languages, thereby increasing the number of Korean books available in foreign languages and improving the overall quality of literary translation. Each year we provide a new platform for cultural exchange by organizing a number of literary events such as readings, forums and writer-in-residence programs. We believe that creating educational opportunities for aspiring translators is essential in globalizing Korean literature. The LTI Translation Academy offers various courses in literary translation throughout the year. By raising the global awareness of Korean literature, LTI Korea aims to serve as a cultural bridge between Korea and the wider world.
