I AM EXCITED to announce that The Sketchnote Handbook is now available in 2 new languages: Russian and German! Here images of the Russian and German translations, along with links to purchase them directly.
The Sketchnote Handbook (Russian)
This edition (Визуальные заметки) was published by Mann, Ivanov & Ferber and completely recreated in Russian, right down to the featured sketchnoter contributions! I was so excited to see photos of the book. Wow!
The Russian translation team included translator Kirill Naumov, editor Maria Krasovskaya, art director Alexey Bogomolov, editor-in-chief Artem Stepanov and marketing manager Vera Ezhkina. Special thanks to Anton Chernousov, a reader who first who suggested it be translated into Russian!

Das Sketchnote Handbuch (German)
I worked closely with Sabine Schultz at HJR and translator/artist Claudia Herling on this German translation of the book. They were just fabulous. We were able to collect a mix of German sketchnoters and have translations made of the featured sketchnotes of English, Aussie and American sketchnoters.
Claudia really did a great job capturing the feel of the book and converting my ideas into a native German-speaker’s mindset — so key in a translation for people who think and work in a different language.
Thanks also to featured sketchnoters: Tanja (Frau Hoelle), Craighton Berman, Boon Chew, Veronica Erb, Jess Esch, Alexis Finch, Carolin Kram, Eva-Lotta Lamm, Gerren Lamson, Matthew Magain, Ralf Appelt, Francis Rowland, Chris Shipton, Paul Soupiset, Oliver Bildesheim, and Michelle George.
