Print Licensing & Co-editions
Collins Language is the partner of choice for publishers and distributors wishing to enter the language learning market and those wanting to extend their ranges. We adapt content from our existing portfolio or create bespoke products according to your specifications:
English and English learner’s dictionaries and reference titles
Bilingual dictionaries and reference titles (with and without English)
Language learning products (including ELT)
Collins Dictionaries and Language Reference
We draw on over 175 years of lexicographical experience, gained in ground-breaking publications such as the bestselling and market-leading Collins English Dictionary, Collins Cobuild Advanced Learner’s Dictionary and Collins Robert French Dictionary.
Our language database holdings are unrivalled by any publisher, allowing us to adapt and develop for our partners English, semi-bilingual and bilingual dictionary and reference material suitable for adults and children, for retail trade and the educational market.
Collins Language Learning and ELT
We offer a wide range of products for language learners wanting to learn English and for English speakers wanting to learn other languages. For example, we have teamed up with Livemocha, the world’s biggest online language learning community, to create a series of interactive, video-based courses for the complete beginner.
The most recent addition to our product list has been a complete range of ELT products. ELT remains an area of enormous potential for publishers as English has become the means of communication for billions of people. Even a small slice of a market currently estimated at US$ 10 billion will translate into significant revenues. With our range of examination practice books (IELTS, TOEIC & TOEFL), self-study materials for workplace and business and our general ELT publishing, we can give you an instant stake in this market.
Collins Language Partners
We have partnerships with many important publishing houses worldwide, such as Dictionnaires Le Robert, Blay Foldex/Berlitz, Random House Mondadori, Merriam Webster and Langenscheidt (to name but a few) and create bespoke publications for them.
Watch the Collins Language experts give a few examples of how our partners benefited from our language expertise and creativity.
