Who can translate a book?
Translating books is a delicate endeavour. This type of translation requires a particularly profound knowledge of language and culture as well as an interpretative and creative streak on the part of the specialist translator.
When translating books, the focus is on an analogous rendering of the source text. The linguistic style, rhetorical devices, and idioms, for example, must be translated into the target language in a way that achieves the author's intended effect on the reader in the target language and culture.
Rigorous research is necessary to determine the author's aforementioned intention. A useful approach is to place the book properly in its historical, political, and cultural context.
In addition, we consult with the publisher or author throughout the translation process to adapt the final product linguistically to the target culture while keeping the narrative, intention, and style as faithful to the original as possible. For example, our specialist translators at Sprachen Koll ensure that the audience in the target language also understands the "moral of the story" of a children's book.
How much does it cost to translate a book?
Unfortunately, the costs of translating books and future bestsellers cannot be given as a flat rate. They heavily depend on the scope and duration of the translation process.

How long does it take for a book to be translated into German?
The duration of a literary translation into most languages mainly depends on the volume and composition of the source.
Due to the extensive process of a book translation, which includes research and independent reading of the book, the translation, the exchange with the publisher or author, any necessary corrections and the final proofreading, these are generally rather large projects, and you should expect a few months of working time to obtain a professional translation of books and other literature.
