Literature Translation Institute of Korea Library

Republic of Korea

The Literature Translation Institute of Korea (Korean: 한국문학번역원, LTI Korea, formerly known as Korean Literature Translation Fund) was founded in 1996 by the Government of South Korea with the aim of promoting Korean literature and culture overseas. LTI Korea regularly sponsors translation and publication of Korean works to promote high-quality translation of Korean literature, and is pushing forward with various overseas exchange programs to strengthen the export base for Korean literature and establish a network for Korean and overseas publishers. It also works to foster professional translators to enhance the capacity of translation of Korean literature. LTI Korea’s public mission is to enrich our shared global culture through spreading Korean literary and cultural works abroad. LTI Korea is a government-affiliated organization which aims to disseminate Korean culture and literature throughout the world in line with the government’s efforts to shape Korean literature in the world culture.
