The new Handbook addresses the many challenges facing translators today, including the continuing consolidation and globalization of the publishing industry and the decline in the number of translations published annually. The section \"A Translator\'s Model Contract\" (accompanied by explanatory notes) serves to guide beginning and experienced translators through the process of contract preparation and negotiation. The fourth edition now includes a convenient \"Do\'s and Don\'t\'s\" section, highlighting key points in the contract negotiation experience. The section on royalty payments has also been brought up to date, and incorporates an alternate royalty clause that should be of interest to translators and publishers alike. Also included in the fourth edition is an expanded discussion of international copyright issues as they relate to the art of literary translation.
