Book Translation Services

More than just translation…

From fiction to non-fiction, audiobooks to ebooks (and everything in between), our team of experienced, efficient, friendly in-house editorial project managers will guide you through the process of book translation with the help of our expert linguists, proofreaders and editors.

Back in 1981, when First Edition Translations was founded, our company was primarily focused on translations for the publishing world and that experience has only grown ever since – now biographies, kidlit, cookbooks, art books, exhibition catalogues and museum guides are our bread and butter.
