I have to admit that I didn’t know until last week. That’s when I got a copy of my book, Exposure – Snapshots to Great Shots in French. The word is Exposition by the way. So the funny thing is that a couple of week ago my wife and I were looking at a sales report for my books and we noticed that there was an entry for sales of my books in China. We thought that was pretty cool and we commented that it would be pretty cool to see some of my books in different languages. I had seen some Czech translations about a year ago but had never seen any other translations.
Then, out of the blue, I received four books in the mail and low and behold, they were foreign translations. Freaky, right? But still very cool. They were translated into French, Spanish, Italian, and another one in Czech. I really love seeing these translations because they often put their own spin on the books, including covers and layouts.
Seeing the books got me curious so I headed over to Amazon International to see what was selling in other countries. I started off with Amazon China. My Chinese is a bit rusty (read as nonexistent) but I did know where the search bar was so I typed in my name and behold, there were my books. Some familiar looking and some, not so much.
I never really did figure out how many languages my books have been translated into but if you are keen on reading your photo instructional books in a different language, there might just be a Snapshots to Great Shots out there for you.
By the way, Exposure in Italian is Esposizione Fotografica.
