One of the most exciting things that has happened since publishing my book (The Verbal Behavior Approach) in 2007, is the interest in translating my book into different languages.
With more than 30,000 copies sold, The Verbal Behavior Approach is now available in several languages including Romanian, French, simplified and complex Chinese, Italian, Japanese and Russian.
I never envisioned that there would be so much global interest in my work. Almost every day I receive FB and website messages from parents and professionals from the US and all around the world. It is always exciting to hear from people who have been impacted from my Facebook page, articles, blogs, YouTube clips, my online course and/or my books!
I’m often asked “Why is your Verbal Behavior Approach book not available in Spanish?” or “How can I translate your book into Hungarian?” Unfortunately I have very little control over the translation of my book. However, if you would like to help get my book into another language, there are three things you can do:
Find a publisher in your language who might be interested in purchasing the translation rights from Jessica Kingsley Publishers (www.JKP.com)
Have the potential publisher visit my web site (www.MaryBarbera.com)
You or the publisher can contact me via my website or directly at: info@MaryBarbera.com and I’ll get you connected with the person who handles translations at JKP!
Thanks for your interest in helping me continue to train parents and professionals around the world!
