Hi everybody!

Could any one give me references of books on how to translate children's material (esp. babies' books), or tips and suggestions?
I translate from English to French but welcome any piece of advice!
Thank you for your help!

check websites that deal with child development phases Mar 2, 2005

I think it would be helpful to read a bit about child language development phases just to give you a context on what lanuaging the babies/children will "understand".
An internet search will quickly bring you to this info in French or English. Specifically I'm thinking about sites that break it down into age groups (of course it's just a general rule what phases correspond to what ages but it should help you a bit).
have fun, I just translated the first few chapters of a book for teenagers and thoroughly enjoyed it.
