The 6th Biblit survey on rates paid to literary translators working into or from Italian has just been published. The idea of giving an overview of the actual situation in the Italian market for literary translations dates back to 2004, when the project was initiated. The survey aims to make a range of up-to-date information available to all translators, whether beginners or experienced, so that they can better negotiate with their publishers.
This latest survey, which presents an overview of data for 2011, is more comprehensive than previous editions as it takes into consideration several different factors that have a bearing on translators’ eventual negotiating power.
The survey can be found here (http://issuu NULL.com/biblit/docs/inchiesta_biblit_tariffe_2011?mode=window).
