    [Translation svcs] Babelcube

    Babelcube, translating/publishing platform on shared royalties. Any ideas?

    (NB. Apologies if this isn't the right spot.)

    Translations through Babelcube, or otherwise.

    Hope someone can help here. I posted my self-published book, Sons of Gods, on Babelcube in the hope of finding translators. I've found someone who will translate into Spanish, and I'm happy to go with her. I would get the Babelcube contract looked at by the Society of Authors, but in the meantime, I'd like to know if anyone has any experience with them? Are they legit? Could someone take a look at the contract, especially the royalty rates (page 14) and give a quick initial assessment? Might it be better, now that I have contact with the translator, to go private with her and use our own contract? It seems to me that Babelcube gets 15% of net, just like an agent.
    Perhaps this post is better off in the Bewares and Recommendations forum; if so, please feel free to port!
