Smashwords Style Guide Translated into Italian

It’s only been a couple weeks since the release of the German and French translations of the Style Guide, and today Mark Coker, the CEO of Smashwords, announced that the Smashwords Style Guide was now available in its 4th language. Thanks to the generous volunteer effort of Giuseppe Meligrana, authors now have a chance to make molto bene eBooks.

Joking aside, this translation is part of Smashwords efforts to expand to support more countries and more languages. Smashwords supplies ebooks to iBooks and Kobo (among several other eBookstores). iBooks recently expanded to include 26 more countries in Europe, including Italy. Kobo is also planning to launch in Italy in the near future.

With the growing market and the growing need for authors to self-publish, Smashwords plans to get ahead of the curve. They’re also going to release translations in more languages, and they have translations are in process for Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and Bengali.
