Hi Millán,

That seems like a very narrow and unprofitable subject for any agency to specialize in.
I think you'd be better off calling to the big record companies directly. Why don't you get in touch with Deutsche Grammophon and the like, to find out how they manage their translation needs?!

Volume? Dec 3, 2007

Millan, classical music is a niche market and I would not expect much demand for translation that would be sent to agencies...

The really big guys (Deutsche Grammophon, EMI etc.) have their own translators - I usually see the same names on CD booklets.
Booking agencies? Festivals?

I have written to a number of local classical record companies in Poland, offering my services and I have done a number of jobs (booklets, promo materials etc.), but the volume has not been overwhelming and the rates were well... let's just say I did it just to break away from my every-day mundane technical stuff, for the love of music.

Not much help, I'm afraid, but that's my experience in this field.
