It could work or that’s just my wishful thinking.
I sometimes wonder how exactly Wisdom has made those decisions.
I did extensive negotiations with them, the outcome of which is that I did my own translations. Good luck!
I do remember hearing that you went as far as to offer payment for the translations. Lol if they won’t accept money then a petition is just wishful thinking.
Selling Dhamma is very profitable and no upfront payment will be more attractive than the promise of continuous fulfilling of sensual desires from such future profits .
