With more than 4 billion speakers, Spanish is one of the most spoken and important languages in the world. There is huge demand for content in Spanish and business opportunities for translators at FIL are found not only in literature, but also in academic textbooks, general publications, journals, or children’s and young adults’ books.

At the Fair you will find colleagues who meet each year to share their experience, and attend various professional development activities. You will also find a range of books in other languages such as English, French, German, Italian and Portuguese.
