Original Works–Translation, Authoring, Editing, Publishing
With the vast expansion of published material in the world today, it is increasingly the case that one’s book is one’s calling card.
Books are the best vehicle to convey one’s original ideas and unique perspectives to the word and invite feedback and new opportunities.
A good translation of a preexisting publication allows the author to make new inroads into worlds beyond the boundaries of other languages. Even when the original was targeted at a specific audience, new dividends are often obtained from broadening the readership. Of course, the translation needs to both preserve the essence of the original as well as to connect smoothly with the sensibilities of the target language.
Diplomatt can help with suggesting the most effective approach. Those with a preexisting manuscript are advised to bring the work in for a consultation session and to map out possibilities for giving the material new breadth through other languages.
Diplomatt can provide support with material that is not fully realized as well.
Potential authors with notes, recordings of talks or lectures, papers or articles (published or not) may be closer to a book than they realize. Diplomatt can help with the developing of incomplete material and the realization of the project’s ambition. Gaps can be filled in through one or more interview sessions leading to the generation of text that will fill in the blanks and result in an effective finished product.
Diplomatt can make it happen.
Packaging and Presentation
Diplomatt can also assist with design, formatting, and getting the book to agents or publishers on behalf of our clients.
The ultimate goal, of course, is for your book to get out into the world and read. We will work with you to put your book together and make the connections that will take it forward.
Diplomatt is also a publisher in its own right. We can print copies of books through our printing house for distribution to critics, libraries, and sale via the internet of both hard-copy and digital editions.
When acting as a book seller for our customers, Diplomatt’s arrangement with its authors is always non-exclusive. This means that Diplomatt can sell your book and help to generate interest in the property. The author does not lose ownership or copyright should the book manage to attract the attention of a larger publisher.
