Wales Literature Exchange is the translation junction connecting writers, translators and publishers in Wales and abroad.

Based in the unofficial cultural capital of Wales, Aberystwyth, the Exchange is committed to literary translation as a necessary element in a delicate ecology. Respect for human relations and their context in the world are vital to international exchange, and so we travel consciously, always asking why and how.

The Exchange is small, but many things: an agency facilitating the sale of translation rights, a translation grant fund for publishers, a workshop bringing together writers and translators, a library of translations, and a curator of translation events. In essence, we are a window between Wales and the world.
