How do I Get My Books Already Translated Into Chinese, On Amazon China?

Greetings All,

I have been intrigued with getting my books, now translated into Chinese, on Amazon China. How do i accomplish this? I checked the Amazon China site every so often and to my surprise, I have seen one of my books, in English, for sale! Does anyone know if Amazon is working on the possibility for writers who have already translated their own books, to simply load them to Amazon China for sale? Thanks.

I don't think it can be done. Amz has mastered the problem of publishing in Japanese, but you have to go to the Japan store to do that. I don't think a Japanese book would appear on the China store, so you can't use that workaround. And there is no option to publish on the China store. (Nor can you publish a Chinese language book through the KDP here.)

Good luck! -- NJ

Amazon only distributes books, not translates them. So they can offer whatever version you have on Amazon.com to various countries.

For translations, you're on your own.
