This month’s Training for Translators master class, Breaking into the book translation market, is coming up this Thursday, October 20. The live class runs from 11 AM to 1 PM New York time, and everyone who registers receives the recording.
In this nuts-and-bolts master class, you’ll learn about the lifecycle of a book translation, from the idea stage to the rights arrangement, to finding a publisher and signing a contract, to marketing the book. We’ll also talk about self-publishing, and about translating books in the public domain. For many would-be book translators, doing the translation is the easy part: this class will allow you to confidently approach the not-so-easy, business-related parts of the book translation equation, and to anticipate how a book translation can go wrong. Open to translators who want to translate fiction, non-fiction, poetry, textbooks, or any other literary media.
Registration is $60 and includes the recording; I hope to see you there!
