Translating your book can make it accessible to all countries making it beneficial for the sales of your books. For example, let us talk about Harry Potter. The JK Rowling book was translated into 73 languages, thus, making it a massive hit in numerous languages.
The book could not have hit the bestselling mark if not for JK Rowling’s prudent and forward-thinking. By making it accessible to the entire world, the book not only gained popularity but also made headlines by being one of the few books that got translated into various languages.
You need not translate every book your write to 60 plus languages, but here are some of the reasons why an author should translate his book:
