Translate your book into German

Is it time to translate your book?

Everyone wants to read great books in their own language, and Germans are certainly no exception. In fact, German is the biggest selling language on Amazon after English.

More and more authors are reporting huge sales after translating their books, with industry leaders like Mark Dawson, Joanna Penn, JD Kirk, and Joseph Alexander now selling their entire catalogues in multiple languages to great effect.

The translation of your work into intellectual property that you own 100% is the new disruption in the writing community… and breaking Germany before the masses pile in has been a top priority of many six- and seven-figure writers.

German language books are the new frontier and writers who have seized the opportunity have seen a 400% increase in sales that has quickly offset the translation cost.

With Amazon Marketing Services now fully-fledged and inexpensive in Germany, and an eager audience of millions… the race is on to translate your book and dominate your niche in German.

Why Translate Books is different

Translate Books has been crafted by Indie Authors, for Indie Authors.

We have an intimate understanding of KDP, with a decade of self-publishing experience and over 600,000 sales. We have walked this path and understand your needs.

It’s no secret that old-style translation is slow and expensive, making it inaccessible for writers. Instead of paying up front, most are forced to license away their rights and receive a pittance on each sale.

But what if you could afford to pay for your own translations and keep 100% of your Intellectual Property?

Translate Books pairs you with experienced human translators who understand your genre, preserve your voice, get your book to market sooner… and ultimately make you much more money.

We promise that:

  • 100% of the royalties from every single sale belong to you
  • Your translated title will be on the market sooner
  • Every word we translate is seen and edited by human eyes

We preserve your author’s voice so you can write to the world.

Now doesn’t that sound refreshing?
