Dear all,

I would like to know your views on the following issue.

If you are to translate a book (educational material, regular updates and new editions expected in the future), can you negotiate royalties for the translation you are going to provide (since it will be updated regularly, new editions coming out, i.e. a textbook)? Or would you charge a fixed fee in the beginning and leave it at that?

I would be grateful if you could let me know, or otherwise, where I can find more information on this.

Many thanks in advance

Ron Peek

Hi,
royalties are very uncommon in the field of textbooks as for my experience, but it depends very much on the market and on the country.

Have a look at these links:
