  • Living expenses during the days of the translation residence in Catalonia.
  • Travel expenses (going to Catalonia and returning from Catalonia to the country of residence). Travel in preferred or higher class, fuel, tolls, taxis, urban transport and car parks are not considered supported expenditures.

Requests and other formalities associated with the procedure for awarding and justifying subsidies must be preferably carried out electronically using the IRL’s electronic system.

For foreign applicants (self-employed individuals) requesting a grant for the first time, accreditation is required. The Ramon Llull Institut is responsible for generating and sending this after having verified the documentation accrediting the applicant’s identity.

The accreditation (user and password) is valid for five years from the date of issue, unless there is some change in the documents provided, of which the IRL must be informed. When filling out the accreditation form you must select “Literature and Thought” as the recipient department.

Please take into account that you should request your accreditation at least 48 hours before the application deadline.

Online Procedure


Call: From May 2nd to May 30th, 2024



In order to receive the subsidy granted, it is necessary to justify a minimum of 50% of the subsidized amount, following the procedure mentioned in the rules. Otherwise, the grant will be revoked.

A maximum budgetary deviation percentage of 20% is established between the initially budgeted cost and the justified final cost of the subsidized activity, which will not entail a reduction in the amount of the subsidy. This percentage may only be applied if it is guaranteed that the object and purpose of the subsidy has been met.

The deadline to submit supporting documentation is December 15 of the year of the call.



Documents can be consulted online at the IRL virtual office.

Additional documentation, when necessary, and supporting documents can be uploaded to the IRL website through the virtual office.
