US vs British English

Postby samotnik » Tue Dec 06, 2016 4:18 am

Hi there,

My first novel was published in June and so far it is doing surprisingly well for the small country I'm coming from.
Of course, the idea of going abroad had sneaked into my mind slowly but gradually. The thing is that it should be organized and payed by me. I found a person (British) who had read my book, found it good enough (in fact he finds it really good) and is willing to translate it. He had been translating from my native language for quite some time.
I wander if translating in British English will repulse in any way the US agencies?
I don't have many chances because I have to pay for the translation (at least for the first 30 pages required from most of the agencies) myself.
Any thoughts are welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Can you please clarify?

I doubt that it matters to any agent which type of English is used in a novel, as long as the novel is a good story and well-edited. "Smilla's Sense of Snow" was translated from the Danish, for example, and I don't really remember which style was used.
