Do translators also create book/journal indexes?
Thread poster: xxxDrewsum

I am seeking a contact who can help me understand how indexes to books and journals are prepared in Europe as compared to the US.

In the US, indexing services are typically done by independent small businesses which serve the publishing houses. Here are my


1. How does a European book or journal publisher have indexes prepared?

2. Do European publishers have their own internal indexers who are employees or is indexing done by outside professionals as is the case with the US?

3. Is indexing done by the same people who do translation?

4. For books which are translated into English, are the indexes translated along with the text or are separate indexes prepared after translation into English?

4. Can you suggest another contact who could help me further?

Any assistance would be greatly
