The 2015 BEA (Book Expo America) is going to be held in New York at the end of May, with China as the sponsor. I have never been to one yet, but I have heard it’s a big trade event for anyone in the publishing industry. I wonder who’ll be in the Chinese delegation and whether it means opportunities for Chinese-English translators. If Chinese books are to be read by anyone who speaks English, they’ll need to be translated first! Hopefully by a well-paid and happy group of translators. Let’s hope it does!
