Our busy stretch of refining and expanding aspects of our sprawling Deals database continues, and you will see the latest wrinkle in the next weekly round-up. The ever-growing section of international deal reports will now be presented alphabetically by territory (with sales in multiple territories listed together at the end).
The new categorization is a direct outgrowth of the dedicated translation deal report form we introduced earlier this summer, which gives each transaction territory-specific tagging. Please note that all non-English sales should be reported through this form now — and all other deal reports should use the revamped regular deal report form now whenever possible. A special thanks to all of you who have patiently adjusted your reporting habits to work with our forms (as well as a thanks for the feedback that has helped us shape those forms). With the steady increase in deal reports, the forms help us post your deals as quickly as possible, with more accurate Dealmakers and territory tags to help spread the word.
Earlier in the year we expanded the children’s deal categories to specifically identify nonfiction, and added Dealmaker tagging for audio editors and houses (and audio deal reports are growing quickly). Internally we have also added a copyeditor focused on deals. And soon, we will try to make available a view on the website for browsing international deals by country as well.
