Advice and answers from the Leanpub Team

What you should do is contact the author(s) of the book, and get their permission and work out some revenue sharing arrangement. Authors on Leanpub own the copyright to their work, and any translation arrangement must be negotiated with them.

You can contact the author by clicking the "Email the Author(s)" link on the landing page for their book, unless they have disabled that feature. In that case, you can reach out on social media or make contact some other way. Authors often have blogs where they have contact forms or even display their email address.
