Academic Book Translation

A Guide To Book Translation

Bookshelves filled with books

ALE is the leading translation and editing service for scholars and institutions around the world. Our staff of handpicked language experts, who have all completed at least a Master’s degree, have years of experience working specifically with academic translation and preparing books for publication. Many of our staff members also hold positions in universities and colleges and have a clear understanding of the work needed to complete an accurate translation of your academic text.

When submitting your text for publication with a respected publisher, you need to be sure that it is written perfectly in the language of publication. Regardless of the level of your research, if the text has linguistic issues because it was not translated by an expert, it will not be accepted. We have helped hundreds of scholars translate and format their books in preparation for publication with some of the top academic publishers around the world, including Brill, Wiley, Academic Studies Press, Random House and more.
