Thank you to everyone who voted for Thoughts on Translation in the recent ProZ.com community choice awards. I’m excited to have won in the best translation blog category, and I promise to keep writing the kinds of articles that inspired you to nominate and vote for this blog! Congratulations to all of the other winners as well!
In other news, the inaugural session of my online course Breaking Into the Book Translation Market starts on Monday (September 12). There’s a good turnout for the course so far, and registration is still open. If you’ve thought of translating books (in general, or a specific book), but are wondering:
- what translation rights are and how they affect you as a translator
- how to query prospective publishers for your translation
- what types of contract terms are important for a book translation
- how to decide how much to charge for a book translation
- how to work successfully with authors and publishers
…then this class will help you get there! Like all of my online courses, the class is open to translators in any language combination, runs for four weeks, includes lots of individual attention and feedback (plus self-paced components), and costs $355, or $340 for ATA members. I’m excited about this new course, and hope to see some of you there!
