The Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Worship created in 2009 “Programa Sur”, which aims to disseminate Argentine thoughts, ideas and values around the world through the grant of subsidies so that books by Argentine authors are translated from Spanish into others languages.
To date, over 800 books involving more than 300 Argentine authors were translated into 38 languages, covering a diversity of genres ranging from young literature, contemporary poetry, stories to academic articles and historical texts, among others.
