The Transcript programme supports translation of Russian fiction, poetry and non-fiction into other languages. The grants are awarded to the variety of literary genres including liberal arts (history, philosophy, political science, sociology etc), classic and contemporary fiction, poetry and children's literature.

Preference is given to intellectual, experimental and innovative works of contemporary Russian authors, as well as works of classic literature never previously translated and little known outside Russia.

The program offers the following grants:

For fiction and poetry:

- full or partial acquisition of rights;
- full or partial payment for translation;

For non-fiction: 

- full or partial acquisition of rights;
- full or partial payment for translation;
- partial payment of the editorial and printing expenses for the publication.

The decision to subsidize the publication of a work, and also the decision of the type of support, is taken by an independent board of experts.

The programme is an international project of the Mikhail Prokhorov Foundation
