Hi Darren, I was wondering if you have any tips as to how I can translate - and re-translate - your books into my own language (Danish, that is). I felt that the first three books of the Saga of Darren Shan left out some very important details and would love to give it a shot with translating the nine last, but I have no idea of how to proceed. Should I contact a publisher first or should I translate the books first? Is it even possible for me to get into the translation business (and to be taken seriously by publishers) despite only just having finished High School and not being of legal age?

I’m afraid I don’t know much about that side of the business. You’d need to ask some people in the Danish publishing industry.
