How to Buy the Lazarus Book
« on: May 02, 2010, 08:48:38 pm »
Following the announcement of the release of the Lazarus book some people asked about an easy way to buy it. After informing myself a little, I have found it and I would like to share this information.

Only if you live in Germany you can buy it in Amazon DE:

http://www.amazon.de/Lazarus-Arbeiten-mit-IDE-Klassenbibliotheken/dp/393654638X/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1272833019&sr=8-2

If you live somewhere else you can buy it in "Welt Des Buches":

http://www.weltdesbuches.de/details/9783936546385/-C+L_Computer-U_Literaturv.htm#

If you are having trouble using this page in german, you can always use Google Translate:

And Similarly you can also buy the Free Pascal 2 Book in "Welt Des Buches":

Another option is to drop the publisher an email and she will send you an invoice with information how to pay via her bank.
Worked for me, enjoying the book right now.

Well, sure, but first you should verify how many potential buyers would exist for this translated version to see if it is viable. Then you should start talking to the new editor.

Also consider before you start the amount of time required for such a task. I think that a full translation should take about 1 month of full-time work. It really is a much greater task then one initially thinks.

I was wrong at start, think is a communnity book, not commercial release. That changes everything.  :'(

You mean it's not published by a company that develops a commercial product? The authors are the people who know Lazarus/FPC best, I think it doesn't get any better than that.

I dont think this is better or worst, just pointed is clear the process to traduce the book take a absolutely different path. If te book is public domain anybody can traduce it. In this situation no.
