Maybe its old news for us Germans here but I was just browsing through Amazon and I was very surprised to see this here:
http://www.amazon.de/Sharpes-Feuerprobe-Bastei-L%C3%BCbbe-Taschenb%C3%BCcher-Cornwell/dp/3404158628/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1209756344&sr=1-1

"Sharpes Tiger" is out in German, called "Sharpe's Feuerprobe". Shocked
Looks like we are going to get the Sharpe books translated in German sooner or later! I think I am going to order this book to read it in my own language! Research reason only of course!

Ah, Macpy, I hope the German translation will be MUCH beter than the Czech one! About a half year ago I discovered two Sharpe books here - Tiger and Fortress - in a hard cover, nicely equipped - well, I went to have a closer look. Ha. It only "walked around" the real Sharpe, so to speak... Pity.And horrible. Of course, no other volumes have appeared since then. And still I seem to be a lonely "real" Sharpe fan here...
So good luck!

Czechmade, maybe you can contact the Czech publishers and offer to do any future translations for them. Tell them you have a true "feeling" for the work and a good "grasp" of the subject matter. Embarassed Laughing But seriously I'm sure you could do a much better job than whoever they had hired.

Hope its a good translation...I mean I will be able to compare! But as I heard they will bring out one German translation once a year...does that mean we will have them all translated in 21 years?! Shocked
with amelia, offer your publisher your own translation, so you might get more people interested in Sharpe once everybody is able to read the translated version!!!!

Well, I have tried to convince one crazy publisher but he fell in love in his late 40s and lost his witts...giggle...and others didnīt answer, have got their Rosamunde Pilcher, no offense intended.
By the way, you really overestimate me - however I would do it with my heart full of love - and with good knowledge of history ( I hope).
Thank you, you are very kind!
