Samples for Translations for the AMS Book Program

The AMS Book Program is actively looking for translators from French, German and Japanese into English.  The works are at levels ranging from advanced undergraduates to research monographs.  In all cases, the translator should be comfortable with advanced mathematics.  We expect there to be a consistent flow of work for successful translators. The AMS has an outstanding tradition of publishing mathematics in translation and a reputation for offering competitive fees to translators.

If you wish to submit a sample translation, you may use the sample texts provided via the links below.
The sample should be submitted to:
