Reach More Readers By Having Your Books Translated
Audience: All Levels
The traditional way to see your book translated into other languages is to license your translation rights to a third-party publisher overseas. Today's indie authors are commissioning their own translations instead and successful indie Joseph Alexander has set up TranslateBooks.com to help. Novelist Clare Flynn has used Joseph's service to successfully translate her books into German and French. In this fireside chat, Clare and Joseph talk all things translation.
Clare Flynn is the UK-based best-selling author of fourteen historical novels. Since July 2021 she has been commissioning her books to be translated first into German and now into French – with fantastic results. Clare is a director of the Romantic Novelists Association and an Authorpreneur member of ALLi. She has been shortlisted as Indie Champion of the Year by the RNA for the second year running.
Joseph Alexander is a million-selling author and owner of the indie-centric translation company www.TranslateBooks.com. Originally dismayed at the terms of bad licensing deals and prohibitive costs of traditional translation, he set about building a team of excellent translators to publish his own books in multiple languages. After seeing incredible sales in these new territories, Joseph created TranslateBooks.com to offer his team of translators and proof readers to indie authors at a fraction of the cost of traditional routes.
