10 Macedonian books to be translated into Spanish, Serbian and Bulgarian

Ten books by Macedonian writers will be translated into Spanish, Serbian and Bulgarian. This is the latest outcome of a call on financing translations of outstanding Macedonian literary works by foreign publishing companies.

The call for foreign publishing companies is part of a program run by the government and the Ministry of Culture. Its latest results were announced Wednesday at a news conference by Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kanceska-­Milevska.
