Self-Publishing Packages

No nation spends more time reading than the U.S.—except India, Thailand, and twenty more countries. When it comes to weekly readership around the world, the U.S. ranks 22nd. So what does that mean for English-speaking authors? Your book has even more potential than you thought. If you translate it.

Book translation is a powerful way to:
