Legalese sometimes looks like a foreign language – and not every literary translator knows it. During this working session, Sarah Burton, Contracts Consultant at the Translators Association, part of The Society of Authors, and James Peake, Contracts Manager for over 30 leading imprints, will go through a sample contract and discuss topics such as royalties, copyright, rights reversion and negotiation techniques from the point of view of the translator and the publisher.
There will be ample time for questions, so do bring in any issues you might have.
