Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) Opens Up Kindle Digital Text Platform To Authors Outside The U.S.

Share:

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) this morning announced that it is expanding its self-service Kindle Digital Text Platform worldwide, giving more authors and publishers the chance to upload and sell books in English, German and French to customers around the world in the Kindle Store.

Until today, DTP was only available to authors and publishers based in the United States. Amazon.com, Inc. has announced that additional language options with DTP will be added in the coming months. Analysts are of the opinion that this is a logical course of expansion for Amazon to make and according to them will reinforce the notion that Kindle isn’t simply a ereader device + ebook store but a true global ecosystem of writers and publishers. Techcrunch has more on this.
