In 2014 NORLA granted subsidies for the translation of 419 Norwegian titles. This is a few titles more than in 2013, when 412 titles received subsidies from NORLA.

The total number of published titles sold to other languages through agents and agencies, however, is far greater, in that many book translations are financed through funding schemes other than those offered by NORLA.
