Around the world in ten publishers (and counting)

babelThe good news keeps coming in! An Italian publisher, Garzanti of Milan, has acquired the translation rights of BABEL – as well as those of LINGO! And a few weeks ago, the Cracow-based publishing house Karakter bought the Polish translation rights of BABEL. That makes ten publishers for BABEL, and nine for LINGO, in twelve different countries in all.

(Update: South Korea makes eleven, thanks to Miraebook, Seoul.)

Wow. I feel like a one-man multinational. Here’s an updated map of the Babel campaign:

  2. Leuk is dat, van harte gefeliciteerd, Gaston! I can’t wait to read Вавилон, the Russian version of Babel. Je goûte d’avance le plaisir de savourer la finesse et la profondeur de l’auteur, mais aussi la qualité irréprochable du travail du traducteur, comme c’était le cas avec Lingo.
