Translation Rights

The Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency is dedicated to selling the translation rights for our authors as widely as possible. It is important to us that our authors’ books reach a large readership, and we strongly believe language should be no barrier. We have an extensive network of contacts around the world, and we pride ourselves on getting significant translation deals in multiple languages.

Every country and every language is important as we work towards our authors becoming international bestsellers.  We work very closely with publishers around the world and regularly travel to meet with editors and attend all the major international book fairs, including the London Book Fair, Bologna Book Fair, Gothenburg Book Fair and Frankfurt Book Fair.
