Any party wishing to obtain a translation for NRP should first contact NRP administrative staff with their request. AAP Staff will process this request through our foreign rights agent.

The foreign rights agent will then work to identify a reputable publisher within the requested country who meets established criteria to determine if a market exists. This can take some time (up to several months), so it is important that a request for translation is made as soon as possible.
The following 8th Edition translations are published or pending copyright approval: 

  • Chinese
  • French
  • Hebrew
  • Indonesian
  • Italian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Serbo-Croatian
  • Spanish

The Spanish edition of NRP is available for purchase through ShopAAP or the eBooks website. The French Canadian translation is available through the Canadian Paediatric Society. For more information, contact the Canadian NRP coordinator
