German Book Translator (Freelance)

reedsy · 27 days ago

We are seeking experienced book translators to work directly with authors and help them share their stories in a different language.

Reedsy’s vetted group of freelancers help authors through every stage of their publishing journey: from editing to translating to marketing their book. Our professionals have worked on a range of widely acclaimed novels, such as The Hunger Games, Originals (Adam Grant), and His Dark Materials series (Phillip Pullman).


The qualifications we look for are:

  • 3+ years of translating experience.
  • At least 5 translated books that are well-reviewed (and available on Amazon, Apple Books or Google Books)
  • Experience working for a traditional publisher will be positively valued.

Though not a requirement, we appreciate it if you are able to copy-edit/proofread your translations (or you work in tandem with a partner who can do it) in order to deliver an error-free translation.


As a translator on Reedsy, you will be able to set your own rates, manage your workload, work where and when you want, collaborate through our intuitive platform, and enjoy Reedsy’s payment protection.
