Thanks a lot for all your suggestions. FWIW, I think I ll just go with special subsidy for ucelova dotace . Special-purpose subsidy covers all the basesMessage 1 of 6 , Jul 15, 2008View SourceThanks a lot for all your suggestions.
FWIW, I think I'll just go with "special subsidy" for "ucelova
dotace". "Special-purpose subsidy" covers all the bases but it
sounds a bit cumbersome and Czenglishy to my ears... I think in
English, "special" should suffice given the context (and probably
isn't even necessary...)
I liked Jamie's "targeted grant" as well, but all the sites I looked
at where it was used seemed to be about giving special grants to
various organisations to help relieve AIDS, famine, poverty-related
problems, etc. Given this usage, I felt it might be a bit too heavy
a term to describe a handout given to some director to make a film...
As regards "kombinovana kopie", further googling after Matej's
explanation seems to suggest it is a "composite print"...
