OUR MISSION IS TO IMPROVE THE FUTURE OF PUBLISHING BY HELPING BOOKS TO TRAVEL.


The business of selling and buying translation rights can be complex. Many books get overlooked in a constant flow of disorganized information. Transactions are often small. It can be hard to focus on the bigger picture while also keeping the business going. Our industry-oriented collaboration platform simplifies the process and makes subsidiary rights more valuable.

We offer a simple submission workflow and follow-up routines that make it easy for agents and editors to handle large or small volumes of rights.

A growing title catalog identifies the owner for each translation right and their representatives. Working within a network of editors will turn leads into requests, into submissions, into sales.

Rightsdesk provides the platform. We don‘t accept submissions, offers for representations or commissions. We connect. The transactions is yours.
