Lenin Still the Most Translated Author
Vladimir Lenin

Father of the Bolshevik Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, has ranked the fifth in a list of the most translated authors in the world.

      On April 23, UNESCO celebrates the International Day of Books and Literary Property. This year that date is mainly dedicated to translation, as it is also the 80th anniversary of its Index Translatonium, a gigantic database containing over two million entries concerning 500,000 authors in 148 countries, and also the oldest UNESCO project.

      According to that database, Lenin, the Soviet revolutionary leader, is among the top five most translated authors in the world, right after William Shakespeare, Jules Verne, Agatha Christie and Stephen King.

      The Russian language also named one of the most translated languages in the world, together with English, French, and German.
