Translation agreement (licence, royalty)

Price:  £45.00(Inc. 20% VAT)(£37.50 Exc. VAT)

Under this translation agreement, rights in the translation are licensed rather than transferred.

This translation agreement has been designed to document the legal relationship between a publisher and a translator, where the translator has been appointed to translate an existing book or similar work into another language - for example, to translate a French novel into English.

The translation agreement includes a licence of copyright (rather than an assignment) and provides that the translator will be remunderated by way of a royalty (with an advance optional). The licence granted under the agreement may be exclusive or non-exclusive, and may be limited to particular rights and/or particular territories.
