ASSOCIATIONS

ASSOCIACIÓ D’EDITORS EN LLENGUA CATALANA - AELLC DESCRIPTION The Catalan Publishers Association is a professional association of companies publishing works in Catalan. The goals of the Association, which under no circumstances are profits-making or speculative, are to protect, promote and publicise literary works in Catalan and to represent, manage and protect the common interests of its members in order to achieve the aforementioned goals. It was founded in 1978 by a group of Catalan publishers who right from the beginning received the support of the Autonomous Government of Catalonia. As democracy had recently been achieved in Spain and after the Constitution and Autonomous Statute came into force, very special attention was required for publishing in Catalan, which had directly undergone very negative effects during the dictatorship. In fact, recovering and standardising the language has become one of the main aims of the Autonomous Government and this recovery and standardization of the written language directly depends on the attention

paid to publishing carried out in Catalan. In addition to the difficulties themselves in publishing any language of a restricted demographic scope, in the case of Catalan, the co-existence and competition in the same territory of a language so strong and widespread as Castilian Spanish has also been added to this process of recuperation and standardisation.
