Hello,

I am a big fan of TMF, and without doubt the best book I ever read in my entire life.

My primary language is Spanish. And as a second language I use English.

Today, I'd like to give copies of TMF to my friends and family. However, none of them can read well the English language.

MJ DeMarco, have you ever thought about launching a Spanish version of TMF? I'm sure it would be a hit everywhere.

Best wishes.

- Fernando

I'd like to see it in French.

I would be able to offer help and assistance to get the book published in France.

2-3 people (minimum) could do this on a couple of months, so we need MJ's response

The problem is not translation, its distribution.

The usual process is to get a Spanish or French publisher to buy a license -- they then translate, produce, and distribute. I only receive a small royalty. Does anyone here own a publishing company?

So you can't translate it and put the translated version on your business' website?

It's great that you're interested in this. :)

What about Amazon.es and BookDepository.com? And of course your own website.

I think that is all that is needed to successfully distribute the Spanish version of TMF.

What do you think about this?

Sure these would all work however I just don't see an applicable ROI at this time. All this stuff costs time and money. Yes, several people have requested for a Spanish version (as well as a French, Hungarian, Japanese, and Italian) version -- however, there needs to be enough volume to make these ventures worthwhile which is why the best venue is selling licenses to companies who are familiar with the markets for the translation language.

That makes a lot of sense. If/When you do license it to be sold in Spanish, please let us know here on the forum. I will definitely be buying a few copies to give as gifts!

One of my close friends owns a publishing company in Russia. Interested?

Bobby, I'm not sure how I missed this, but YES. Do they purchase translation licenses?

After four months, there are news about this issue?

At the moment, I've sold licenses for Polish and Hungarian with Thai, Italian, Japanese and Indonesian in the pipeline.

I've received a lot of "translation" interest for Spanish from individuals, not publishing companies. While I would sell a license to an individual, they need to have experience (or show an ability to execute) on the process, which, isn't exactly easy as it could take months to complete.

MJ the past month I've been talking with a good friend that owns a publishing company in South America. They are specialized in US Books/Publications.

I want to get more details about the license to distribute. What is the best way to reach you about this opportunity?

I am trying to buy a copy of TMF for my niece in Spanish. I am currently in Mexico and the internet connection is just terrible, have not been able to find where to get the book in alternate languages. I had thought there was a Spanish version though...

Amazon Mexico only has it listed in English from what I can see

It is in production now, I'm guessing release later this year or early next.

I'll post a link to the publisher...

Thanks MJ! I will be looking for it to come out!

For now I got her Padre Rico, Padre Pobre (rich dad, poor dad). This should hopefully start to develop a spark that she can start with.
