    Celebrating our International Partners on our 25th Anniversary: Akcali Copyright Agency (Turkey)

    In 2017 we are celebrating the 25 th anniversary of our founding. From the very beginning, Berrett-Koehler books have been widely translated to many different languages and wonderfully received all over the world. Over the years, we have signed over two thousand foreign translation rights deals. We could not have done this without the tireless work of our translation rights agents around the globe. As part of our year-long celebration, we will be featuring one of these foreign partners every month.  We asked each of them to provide us with a few words describing their experiences working with BK.

    In June, we're featuring our longtime Turkish partner Akcali Copyright Agency. Founded in 1985 by  Kezban Akcali, a publishing veteran who has since passed away, this agency is one of the top three agencies in Turkey. By focusing in helping foreign publishers getting their books published in Turkish, they have changed Turkey's publishing landscape. Recently they have also starting representing Berrett-Koehler's list in a neighboring emerging market, Azerbaijan. Akcali Copyright Agency has helped us negotiate over 100 deals in Turkey. We look forward to continuing business with this dynamic team. Here is what they wrote to us:

    As the Turkish co-agent for Berrett-Koehler Publishers for nearly 20 years, it is a great pleasure working with colleagues, friends like Maria Jesus, Catherine and their great team. With its inspiring books and lovely team BK have always been one of the leading clients that we have had the pleasure of doing business with. We are happy to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Berrett-Koehler Publishers and hope that our fruitful cooperation continues for many years.

    Thank you Atilla, Mustafa, and the entire team at Akcali!
