Hi folks,

I once gathered some introductory information on the field of literary translation. Now we have a new onsite blog, so I cut and pasted it there.

https://go.proz.com/blog/literary-translation-an-introduction-for-translators-interested-in-the-field

Some of the material must be out of date. Any feedback would be welcome.

Non-working links in the text, please fix Sep 11, 2018

Hi Henry,
The two links in this paragraph don't work, they time out:

Q: When translating a book or other literary work, can I expect attribution, royalties or other such rights?

A: It may be possible to have your name appear in the publication, earn a percentage of royalties on an ongoing basis, etc. -- it all depends on what you can negotiate. Model contracts are available online from PEN and other sources. http://72.10.54.216/page.php/prmID/322 A non-legalese discussion of negotiating terms can be found here: http://72.10.54.216/page.php/prmID/320

Thanks
Katalin
