14/10/2021 - Amazon account: good news!
After a long battle we managed to get Amazon to admit that they closed our account in error. Our account has been reinstated (with apologies) and we are fully operational again. This is the second time they have done that to us and we hope it will never happen again. We apologize to all our users for this inconvenience but it really wasn't our fault.
We are trying to get all of our books back online quickly but unfortunately, it will take some time.
If you notice that any of your books is not online, please let us know as soon as possible so we can proceed to restore them as soon as possible.
Thank you all for your patience and support.

26/04/2021 - New useful feature
We have introduced, for our authors, the possibility of having our native speakers check the translations before their approval. With this function the evaluator will read the first 5% and the final translation. The author has to send him just a small "tip": 5 EUR for the first 5% and 10 EUR for the final translation, via the Paypal service by using a simple function that can be performed directly from the translation details form. The evaluator will obviously not carry out a proofreading or in-depth editing but he will check some parts of the translated text. Being a native speaker, it will be very easy for him to understand if the translation was done via an automatic translation system or if the work was presumably done correctly. This will greatly facilitate the author's task, especially for languages he does not know. This service is not yet active for all languages but we are working to ensure that everyone will have the opportunity to use this fantastic tool. Thanks.

17/08/2019 - Books publication on Amazon
This communication to inform all our users of the unspeakable, incorrect and dictatorial behaviour by Amazon that, suddenly and without any justified reason, has decided to close our account we had with them. They have only given a general reason according to which some of our books published with them would not be compliant with their unquestionable "rules", without indicating us either what book, or what rule, or anything else. This resulted in the immediate removal from the sale of ALL our books in all Amazon sites. We would like to clarify that this has effect only for the Amazon library. The others (Google, iTunes, Kobo, etc.) continue to be regularly operational, in addition to a good part of books that (fortunately) we had published on Amazon through our sub-distributors. After three years of work and thousands of books published by us, without giving us the slightest chance of replication, nor having any explanation from them, nor giving us the opportunity to find an alternative solution, with a simple email, they quietly dropped their "cleaver" on our business. Furthermore, depending on this, they will keep all our revenues accrued in the last period. However, we want to reassure you that your percentages will be regularly paid to you. No problem, we'll pay them. In fact we, unlike someone else, are honest and we will never allow ourselves to betray the trust of our users. On this matter, our feeling is that, as has already happened to many other authors / editors, given that our sales figures were considerably growing and that Amazon should have paid us more and more royalties, they have seen fit to close everything and keep all the dough". Obviously, we don't have any proof of this, nor can we move an official accusation like that to a colossus like Amazon, but reading on several online forums (which we suggest you to do, too) it seems to be an operation that Amazon practices very often and with an increasing number of users. Be careful. However, there is good news: we are, albeit slowly, restoring the publication of all our books with Amazon, through our sub-distributors who, very kindly and understanding this absurd situation, have given us their absolute availability for carry out this operation as soon as possible. We trust that everything will return to normal within a couple of weeks. Certain of your understanding, we apologize for this disservice, which is absolutely not dependent on us and we remain at your disposal for any further clarification. Thank you and good luck to everybody.
11/08/2019 - Books apparently ”disapperared” from Amazon
Hello, we'd like to inform our users that there is a temporary issue with books published by Amazon, which seem are "disappeared" from Amazon bookstores (the problem only concerns Amazon and in no way affects the other bookstores). We are working to solve this issue and we are sure it'll be fixed in the next few days. Our apologizes for this inconvenience. Thank you for understanding. The Traduzionelibri.it Team
10/07/2019 - New feature
Now authors can repeat a translation/narration request after three months from the last one already done. Thank you.
16/04/2019 - Books bulk upload
We have activated a new feature that will surely be convenient especially for publishers. In the "My Books" section you will find a new "BOOKS BULK UPLOAD" button, that will allow you to upload all your books in one go. All instructions are shown on the related screen.
12/04/2019 - GREAT NEWS!
We have introduced the "Reader" role. A Reader will have the opportunity to read for free the previews of the new translated books and to give an evaluation of them. This will help both the author and the translator to publish a perfect translation. As thanks for this work, the Reader will have a 30% discount on all the books in our well-stocked online bookstore. Users already registered as authors, translators or narrators, only need to enter their profile (My Account - Change your data) and select the option 'I want to be part of the reader group'. They will also benefit from the mentioned discount.
30/03/2019 - New reports and payments method
In order to continuously improve our services, starting from next month (April 2019) we will modify our reporting and payments system, moving from quarterly to monthly. Practically, at the end of every month, if the minimum threshold of 50 EUR has been reached, we'll issue all the receipts / invoices related to royalties collected up to two months before. (For example: at the end of April we'll report royalty collected until the end of February). The payments will therefore no longer be quarterly but monthly. All contracts will be updated with this change so, please, use the new version. Hoping to have done something pleasant, we wish you all the best.
25/03/2019 - New signature tool
To facilitate the procedures for signing contracts, is available, to all users, a new tool which will allow them to sign agreements (not digitally) in a simpler and faster way. You can find it directly in the translation / narration form. Thank you.
01/03/2019 - New proposals acceptation terms
