Question
Dear Jannie

Are there Authors who have written different Novels in different languages?.

Examples - English, French, German, Spanish etc

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
No, the author does not write the novel/book in different languages.

The publisher has the novel/book translated in other languages depending on the sales of the novel/book, and the demand for another country in their language.

It is strictly up to the publisher and the contract between author and publisher.
