Timelines may vary, depending on the specific language being translated, and the availability of that language expert, but in most cases, full translations are completed within three to four months.
Translations are delivered back to you on an Archival CD, in MS Word format and PDF, print ready.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE COVER DESIGNS:
We offer new, professionally developed cover designs for each foreign language edition of your book. It is important, especially for marketing purposes, to be certain that the look and feel of the cover represents the language into which is has been translated. Our expert designers will easily create designs that will enhance sales of your book overseas, while keeping as close to as they can to the original theme of the English version in their design.
Not all ducks are alike in the world. Not everyone swims in the same pond or quacks in the same language... this is why we offer book translation services. We know that it can be difficult to reach out to a variety readers of differing languages. Not everyone speaks English, and we understand that in order to reach a greater worldwide market, your readers should have an opportunity to read your work in their native tongue.
Our flock of language experts will translate your book, using specialized software, retaining the page format. Then, they will carefully proofread your work to be certain that nothing has been lost in translation. Idioms, numbers, names, and other special words or phrases can often be misread when working on a translation. This is why we have expert speakers, some native to the language they specialize in, some are instructors of the language, to watch for any small drop that might slip through the cracks. While not everything can translate perfectly from English to another language, we do our best to produce a foreign language version of your book that you will be proud to promote.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS: All manuscripts submitted for translation services must be submitted in Microsoft® Word format. Our systems are not compatible with Apple® programs.
