New book: Start Programming using Object Pascal Language
« on: April 23, 2011, 04:56:41 pm »
I've translated my Arabic book (إبدأ مع أوبجكت باسكال) into English under creative commons license.

New book name is: Start programming Using Object Pascal

You can download the book from here http://freepascalanswers.wordpress.com/2012/09/02/freepascallazarus-book-startprog/

Some Brazilian users have suggested me to sell some translated material from English to Portuguese in LazarusBrasil site. I'm thinking of trying it out. The final price would be something like $ 3.00 to $ 5.00.

What do you think about this possibility?

Ok, no problem.
but didn't you think that money may decrease book downloads?
we need to spread Free Pascal and Lazarus, by make resources available.

If it is possible to make the translated book in low price that would be good.

We could pay you a percentage of sales as the author, but I do not know how much it would sell.

Localized books may sell less than international (English), but it worth the try

I don't have a PayPal account, and may be Sudan is prohibited from such sites.
is it an American site?

You can send me your e-mail at motaz@code.sd to send to you the source document. I've write it using open office

Wow! Well done! this is one serious effort, and it is well appreciated. I'll spread the link to the book, and hopefully it'll help many Lazarus beginners. Thank you!

That's need more time and effort.
I'm still not finished from the first translated book, it needs another month for errors correction

The authorship percentage paid by editors usually is 10% of the final price.
