Followed by, in simple steps, the system operation:
Enter your data
To access all our services you must first sign up.
It's very important that you describe yourself as well as you can. Enter your own detailed biography, so you can attract the attention of authors.
Search books to be translated
By accessing your personal area you can search for books to be translated. You can select them by author, genre, language and many other options.
Carefully evaluates the books on which you are going to work. Read with attention the description, the book excerpt and verify the sales figures. If you prefer, contact directly the author and talk about it with him.
The translation could take a long time. Make sure you invest it in the best way possible.
Since the author can optionally deposit a translation grant, we suggest that you mainly assess books with this option enabled.
The "translation grant" is a minimum fixed amount that you'll get in any case, though sales of the translated book will not reach levels that could adequately compensate your work.
If you like, you could also establish a minimum value of the translation grant, below which authors couldn't contact you. In this way, you will receive only proposals for the translation of books with a grant greater or equal than to what you have established. However, you can always search for books even without any grant. Obviously, by setting this value, you might miss the opportunity to translate an excellent book that has no grant set.
Propose your translation
The system will allow you to propose directly to the author your translation. At this stage, you will have to indicate the work execution times.
As your presentation, you will need to translate a small sample text (a few paragraphs) that the author will evaluate, before permanently entrust the job.
Sign the translation agreement
Once the author has accepted your translation proposal, you have to digitally sign the translation agreement, already signed by the author.
Do not worry because, until you have not translated the 5% of the book and you have not obtained the approval from the author, you can always rescind the agreement without incurring any penalty.
If you don't have a digital signature, you can simply get it from one of our partners like Aruba, Infocert or by any other provider legally recognized, or you can use an alternative method, as detailed described in >> this page <<.
Complete the translation
During this phase, there will be an exchange of information between you and the translator, in order to reach the goal. We will always do as guarantors, ensuring that the work will be properly carried out.
At this stage, you will have the obligation to:
- Translate the first part of the book (5%)
- Complete the translation
Upload the translated book
After completing the translation, you will need to send the translated book and we'll publish it.
The management of the publication, the distribution and the accounting of the proceeds from sales will be entirely carried out by us, as described in the translation agreement. You can view at any time the sales data and your earnings, directly from your personal area.
The audiobook is for sale in all the best world online libraries. You have only to periodically check the sales performance of the audiobook and automatically receive revenues directly into your account.
Now you definitely must be wondering how your work will be rewarded. Obviously, no one works for free. The author will share with you a percentage of the sales revenue, staggered as follows:
|€ 0,00||€ 999,99||15%||75%||10%|
|€ 1.000||€ 1.999,99||30%||60%||10%|
|€ 2.000||€ 3.999,99||60%||30%||10%|
|€ 4.000||€ 7.999,99||70%||20%||10%|
|€ 8.000||€ ...||80%||10%||10%|
For clarity, we insert a graphical view of the same report:
