If you are a publisher, you will be part of our Franco-Indian seminars debating on current subjects for the profession, you will be guided in your choices amongst verbose French productions and invited to participate in major literary rendez-vous in France. We will accompany you in issues related to the acquisition of publishing rights of French titles in India and we will lend support towards the publication of translations of your favorite French texts – in English but also in all Indian vernacular languages- owing to our Publication Assistance Programme baptised « Tagore »! If you are a translator of French to any Indian language we will help you in your training needs, we will recommend Indian publishers interested by translations of French texts, and we will orient you towards certain French titles that you would have the pleasure of translating in your language in the future. If French thought interests you, then you are cordially invited to various discussions and debate forums with delightful interventions from French and Indian thinkers. If you are a fan of French literature come meet with French authors during their tours in India on the occasion of literary festivals or book launches organised in collaboration with their Indian publishers.
The Book Office activates all means at its disposal to promote French thought and literature in India. It plays the role of a mediator between the world of French and Indian books to reinforce exchange and deepen collaborations.
