There is an excellent model contract posted on another forum, for literary (book) translations:

http://www.proz.com/?sp=bb/viewtopic&topic_id=318&forum_id=19



I would be interested to learn about the standard percentages for royalties due to translators when the translated books are published. This refers to 13.1, 13.2 and 16.x clauses in the above-mentioned model contract.



If some of you have experience with this side of the business in the US (book published in the US by a US publisher) and could give me some idea about the numbers (either here or in a private email) I would appreciate it very much.



If you have used a different contract, please tell me about that (again, if the information sensitive, send me a private email).



Thank you very much



Katalin

Dear Katalin,

The post is quite old and your link is not active, but I was wondering, have you ever found the answer? I am looking for the same information and would be grateful for any pointers.

Kind regards,

Oksana.
