Information for Translators and Authors

It is our policy to contract directly with a foreign language publisher when licensing a translated edition. The foreign language publisher makes arrangements directly with the translator of their choice and SAGE is not involved in that arrangement.  If you are interested in translating a book as an independent translator, we suggest:

  • researching local publishers who are actively publishing in the subject area of your choice
  • write a proposal to relevant publishers describing the book you wish to translate as well any significance the title holds for potential readers

Subsidiary Rights and Licensing

Please send all queries for reprints, audio, tv/film, serial and book club rights to:

Katherine Ryan, Head of Global Rights and Licensing
