About eBook Dynasty

eBook Dynasty is operated and owned by Australia's Solid Software Pty Ltd (ACN 084 786 498).

Since 2004, we have been offering English/Chinese and Chinese/English translation and interpretation services to clients around the globe, including Australia, Taiwan, China, Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other countries and regions. We translate and create content for a great variety of media, both online and on paper, in all disciplines and fields. Many of our clients have since returned for our advice on translation-related issues.

In 2010, we marched into the territory of book translation and international rights representation and management. We translate and promote English books to the Greater China, while recommending worthy Chinese books to English publishers and readers.

In February 2011, we established a Chinese ebook store, which is today's eBook Dynasty, to actively enhance the publishing and promotion of Chinese ebooks. We also translate, publish and promote English books in Chinese in electronic format.

eBook Dynasty was formally launched in June 2012, and has been offering print book publishing service since November 2014. The long-term goal of eBook Dynasty is to help the best literary voices reach across all linguistic and cultural boundaries.

On December 3, 2015, eBook Dynasty was one of the recipients of Victoria's Multicultural Awards for Excellence. eBook Dynasty received the Victorian Multicultural Marketing Award, which recognises "a business that uses a multilingual workforce and innovative marketing and communication strategies to engage multicultural audiences and who use their brand or reputation to promote the benefits of cultural diversity".
