Translations from Chicago

The University of Chicago Press is pleased to present a virtual catalog of all our in-print English-language editions that have been translated from other languages. Publishing these works in English would have been very difficult, if not impossible, without the generous financial help of funding institutions from a number of international organizations, and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of these.

Organized by language of origin, you will be able to get a taste of Chicago’s translation program, which confirms both our commitment to excellence and our mission to make scholarship available to a wide audience around the globe.
