Cankarjeva založba Publishing House has launched several large projects, such as the Lexicon and Dictionary of Foreign Terms, and has also produced several important series of literature in translation such as Nobelovci ("Winners of the Nobel Prize in Literature") or XX. stoletje ("Novels of the 20th Century"), featuring novels by Joyce, Conrad, Freud, Kureishi, Lessing, and Ishiguro.
Among their more recent undertakings are two collections: Bralna znamenja ("Reading Signs"), a collection about books and the processes of reading, and Hvalnice ("Hymns"), where renowned Slovene authors examine particular subjects from singular points of view. Cankarjeva založba's publishing programme also offers works from various other fields, for example, drama, poetry, children and youth literature, travel writing, language handbooks, and monographic publications, all the while putting great focus on Slovene authors. Book publications are accompanied by literary presentations and readings.
To recognise the winner of the Vilenica International Literary Prize Cankarjeva založba publishes the Slovene translation of their work in cooperation with the Slovene Writers’ Association and International Vilenica Festival every year.
