Academy books get international praise in Germany

Numerous Academy books will be translated into other languages after being shown at the Frankfurt (Germany) Book Fair, the world's largest book fair consisting of 8,000 publishers and more than 300,000 participants. Publishers from Italy, Spain, France, Japan, Mexico and other countries committed themselves to translations of many of the Academy's Orthopaedic Knowledge Update (OKU) and OKU specialty series, Essentials of Musculoskeletal Care and monographs on a variety of topics. "The Academy has exhibited at the Frankfurt Book Fair for four years, and the sale of translation rights will provide substantial revenues for our other educational programs," said Lynne Dowling, manager of the Academy's international activities. "We especially were pleased when a publisher from Spain called our publication's program among the top three of medical societies."
