Freakonomics Around the World

We’ve started to get e-mails from increasingly far-flung places, asking when Freakonomics is being published in other countries and languages. So we asked for a list of the foreign publication schedule, and here’s what we got. The first group is an alphabetical list of the countries where the book has already been published or will be soon. The second group is an alpha list of countries where the translations are still being worked on. I have a feeling the list is not quite current because, although we’ve been sent the Brazilian and Korean and U.K. editions, we haven’t yet seen the Slovenian translation, e.g.; at least I’m pretty sure I would have remembered it if it was indeed sent.
