What are the benefits?

Books from other countries offer a vast (and largely untapped) source of exciting opportunities and potential success stories for UK publishers. 

    • Books from around the world add depth, variety and diversity to any list.  

    • Translated books offer different voices, styles and perspectives. 

    • Historically, some of the very best-loved children's books and characters have come to us from other countries. For example, the likes of Babar, Tintin, Asterix, Pippi Longstocking and the Moomins. 

    • A great book is a great book – and with skilful and sensitive translation, we believe a great book from another country has the potential to be even greater when shared with a whole new audience of readers.

 "If we don't offer children literature from other languages, we are starving them." Philip Pullman (TES, 2005)
