Translation rights have been an essential part of our business for more than seven decades. We pride ourselves on being leaders in the field, offering expert representation across markets throughout the world. Jennifer Custer heads the department, closely supported by Hélène Ferey, but the whole A.M.Heath team is behind every move.
In addition to launching dozens of new titles each year, we also manage our extensive, active backlist, ensuring our clients’ profiles stand out abroad as much as at home. We work directly with publishers in Italy, France, Spain (including Catalan and Galician markets), the Netherlands, Portugal, Greece, Israel and others. We also work with the co-agents listed at the bottom of this page.For information on individual titles, or to receive our latest rights guide, please write to either:
I’ve worked with translation rights since 2004, when I joined the A.M.Heath team. I took over the department in 2008, and proudly continue our long tradition of emphasizing these rights as a central part of our business. With friends and colleagues at publishers all over the world, I place our authors at the best homes internationally and oversee their careers in these markets.
I started in rights at C+W Agency in 2008, where I went on to become Joint Head of Translation Rights in 2014. I am delighted to be taking over the rights department at AM Heath this year, building on the international success that Jennifer has had, and on AM Heath’s impressive reputation at the forefront of foreign rights.
I joined A.M.Heath in 2012 after working for two years as a scout, having found I loved working on the translation side of the business. I am French so work particularly closely in the French market but also bring my expertise in other markets to the company. I work alongside Jennifer Custer securing the best possible deals in each market and following up on the sales of translated editions.
