What Should You Know about Book Translation Companies and Agencies?

How are Book Translation Services carried out from a global perspective?

First and foremost, book translation services entail reproducing books in their entirety from default languages to other languages, with the prime motive of reaching out to a vast audience without readability issues with regards to language. Moreover, book translation services massively require a lot of technicalities, talents and professionalism. This is simply to be able to successfully transform books from one language to the other, without possibly uttering the initial subject matter or the author’s original expressions. Thus, the text authenticity must always be maintained.

In the recent past, translation of book publications from language to language have seen remarkable success, notably from English to all global languages and vice versa, and with English, French, Chinese (Mandarin), Dutch and Spanish among the most target translation languages for books globally. Some authors who turn to seek global outreach for their books, for marketing, educational and other purposes, usually consider the importance of these books being translated to other languages.

Examples of such books include; novels, magazines, textbooks, autobiographies, thesis, poetry, presentations, literary pieces, cookery books, guidebooks, children’s book, art catalogs, travel books, eBooks, periodicals, etc.

What processes are involved in book translation services?

Globally, professional book translation services are carried out using the routine planned processes involved in the translation from language to language. These professionals, equipped with technical knowledge, often carry out the following procedures required for the book translation agency;

  • Necessary authorization processes including the expression of the need for a book to be translated into other languages, either by the original author or second parties who’ve obtained the required permissions or rights.
  • Upon reaching agreements (payment rates, translation duration), the book to be translated gets a green light for work to commence. Thus, the translation proper begins, with major features including;
    • Reviewing/Copy-editing
    • Typesetting (DTP)
    • Proofreading for translation errors
    • Print-ready PDF/EPS/MS Word etc., or Outlined text

Book translation service providers are generally obliged to adhere to professional writing ethics. This is aimed at curbing the unscrupulous violations of authors, editors and even book publisher rights. With piracy being the most common setback.
