I'm laughing because Literary Saloon on the other side of the world picked up a Malaysian publishing story before I did!
Bernama reports that more international chic literature will be translated into Bahasa Malaysia to cater for female Bahasa Malaysia medium readers. The company behind the move, apparently, - KaryaDya Publication Sdn Bhd.
I'm really happy to see more books from elsewhere translated into BM as readers deserve a wider choice of reading materials, and a little competition for local purveyors of popular fiction should help to raise standards. Should. It'll be interesting to see what actually does happen.
So ... what do you think, and what would you like to see translated for the BM reading market?
