Subsidiary Rights

University of Toronto Press controls translation and documentary/film rights on more than 3,500 titles. Our books have been translated into more than 20 languages and sold around the world. Please look through our latest catalogues, or browse the full list of new and backlist titles available on this website.

You can also subscribe to a subject- or rights-specific mailing list to receive information about new and forthcoming titles. Simply set up an account and then manage your subscriptions online. 

Please note that University of Toronto Press does not license directly to translators; we require a formal agreement with an established publisher. We attend the Frankfurt Book Fair each year and are pleased to meet with editors and publishers. Please contact us for an appointment.
