is there a site to buy translated discworld?

I have everything in Spanish, but I'm after Chinese. I know some exist at least, I'm seen pics of them on the web but have not found a way to buy.

Any help out there???

Beg, plead and plod

Hi GlennSpain and welcome to the site. When you say Chinese, do you mean Cantonese or Mandarin? o_O And do you read those languages?

Sorry, I can't think of an answer to your question at the moment, but I'll give it some thought. :)

I've seen the books here in Cardiff in Welsh - but that'll probably be just as difficult as Chinese. :laugh:

Yeah that's about the same as I came up with. o_O

If you click the links here on Colin Smythe's site and scroll down, you should see a picture of each of the books and the Chinese covers. But I have no idea how you'd go about buying them I'm sorry. :(

Let me know if you do find more than the first four (all I could get).

I've got them all in English, and a fair bunch of them in German (www.amazon.de) so Mandarin was going to be my next stepping stone... slowly :)
