Does anyone have any standard language that you put into contracts specifying credit and royalties (assuming they are available) for the translator?

Thanks.

At the risk of stating what you've already tried, there might be something to be found by searching for “royalty agreement” (or even “royalty agreement form”) with Google—though I'd be wary of the results.

And short of consulting with a lawyer you trust (which I would recommend), remember to keep it simple, e.g., “X agrees to pay Y the following royalties for Z.”

The most effective contracts are also usually the shortest. Good luck (and also look here: http://www.jurisint.org/doc/orig/con/en/2001/2001jiconen42/2001jiconen42.pdf - but be aware that I have not read through it, nor reviewed its accuracy)!
