"Worth it! If you ever wondered how to get your books published in foreign markets, this course will explain it all :)

After finishing it, I was able to get my book into the process of translation immediately. Never thought that it will be so simple to get it done, and hopefully it will lead to great profits." UDEMY Student.

Take your Kindle sales to a whole new level through foreign translations.

The real secret to expanding your Kindle sales? Expand your reach.

Worldwide there are currently 13 kindle stores with only three of them in English speaking countries (four if you include India), yet the majority of authors totally ignore what is essentially an untapped goldmine. Kindle Direct Publishing has made it very simple to get your book to market, however this has also resulted in much more competition; it's increasingly difficult to be heard through the crowd.

So what's the alternative?

If you are willing to put in the work, there is a distinct lack of competition in the foreign language Kindle stores. This is due to less people in these countries releasing books and a higher barrier to entry for English speaking authors. This is absolutely great news for those willing to venture into the unknown and jump the hurdle of getting their book translated.

With this course you will easily:

  • Find an experienced and talented translator at a great price.
  • Get a quality translated version of your book that you can be proud of and that makes money.
  • Understand the different markets and choose a country that suits your goals.
  • Save money and time by using simple tips on preparing your document and getting your cover translated.
  • Easily set up your online 'foreign' presence with websites and author pages (author central).
  • Expand into other eBook platforms such as Ingram Spark (with their huge international reach).
  • Open up totally new revenue streams through up-selling and foreign versions of your audio-books and paperback books.
  • Avoid costly errors when formatting (especially with Japanese eBooks).
  • Plus much more…


Due to the fact there is a lot less competition in many of these markets there are also some 'hidden' benefits.

  • It is a lot easier to become a bestselling author, and once you have achieved this you can use it as a badge of honor.
  • Also, it is easier to win the Kindle All Stars, where you receive a bonus for having a popular author name or book. I have won this twice with books in a very specialized niche (very difficult to do in the US). Also the German All Star bonus is the second largest after the US and a lot bigger than the UK one.


Through publishing 15 books, each one translated in up to 5 different languages I've encountered all of the obstacles to getting a quality translation online and selling. This course covers every problem you will face how you can easily overcome them. If this course was available when I got started I would have saved an awful lot of blood, sweat and tears…not to mention money!

As there is a money back guarantee there is absolutely no risk on your part which is great.

So get started today and literally skyrocket your kindle sales.

*Bonus: All my students are able to contact me directly with their genre and I'll be happy to research it and give my opinion and a few pointers.

Bestselling author and Kindle All-star.

After years of travelling and living abroad (mostly teaching), I finally decided to settle down and get a 'real job'. Thankfully that didn't last long. Eventually I discovered that if I combined my skill of 'teaching' with my passion for 'learning' I could turn it into a business. I have since published 15 non-fiction educational books (under various pen names) and am now a bestselling author and Kindle All-Star. In addition to writing I also run Actual Books LTD where we help authors produce very high quality self published paperback books available to bookstores worldwide.

I absolutely love entrepreneurialism . For years I couldn't work out 'what I wanted to do' and 'why can't I settle into a 9-5 job?'. For me being an entrepreneur fixed all of that, finally I could pursue my passions and still make money doing it.

Due to my entrepreneurial tendencies and my years of teaching experience I now produce clear and concise courses that will help you get ahead and fulfill your goals.

Good luck and keep learning.
