Translation

Success in the international rights market depends on regular contact, and we work hard to nurture our relationships with overseas publishers and agents that have been built up over many years.

With a wealth of experience in foreign rights-selling in all markets and genres, our translation agents deal directly with their customers as well as using local co-agents.

Please refer to the Rights Guides and Archive sections above for more information on the books in which we handle translation rights.

For all general enquiries about translation and foreign rights, please email Margaux Vialleron.
