I wanted to post this to another thread started by Marion, but that one is locked already.
Here is a model contract that you may find useful. It is from Canada, so you canát use it directly, but some of the clauses on copyright, royaties, etc. may be useful for you.

Thanks!!! Apr 18, 2004

I am in the process of discussing the translation of a book, and have no idea how to go about contracts. I am, needless to say, very grateful for this model contract.

Thanks again,
