Could anyone help me with finding standard terms for translation of non-fiction books in Sweden?

It's a relatively short, non-fiction book (35,000 words), multiple contributors, max 2500 copies of the English version.

Any ideas?

Could you elaborate? Mar 22, 2005

What exactly do you mean by "standard terms for translation of non-fiction books"? Does the book deal with a specific topic for which you need standard terms? I'm guessing you don't mean a translation of "is i magen"-type-of-term. I'll gladly point you in the right direction if you fill in some blanks for me.

All the best
Catherine

Misunderstanding Mar 23, 2005

My fault, I wasn't clear enough. I'm looking for guidance on standard contractual terms for translators, i.e. percentage of profits or flat rate for translation only... etc etc. There's no rush, but I'm really after tips and advice or dos and don'ts when it comes to negotiating book translations.
