Andrew Nurnberg Associates International’s offices are a unique, global network providing local expertise and in-depth knowledge for our clients across key translation markets.
Agents: Weerawat “Big” Techakijjathorn
Thailand | Indonesia | Mongolia
ANA Bangkok was established in 2023 to best serve the literary translation markets of Thailand, Indonesia and Mongolia. Agency director, Weerawat “Big” Techakijjathorn, has more than a decade’s experience in acquiring and publishing international literature in Thailand. He started out as an editor of foreign literature before becoming the director of foreign literary rights for one of Thailand’s best-known publishers. From there his enthusiasm for translated literature led him to study the Indonesian market.
Thailand and Indonesia are among the most important translation markets in Southeast Asia. With reading tastes rapidly developing —and a more sophisticated range of fiction and non-fiction being published in greater quantity— we see Thailand and Indonesia outperforming the neighbouring markets in years to come. We’re here to help our clients explore the diversity and richness of these key markets now. We are supporting international authors to develop meaningful relationships with publishers and build local readerships. This is not to forget Mongolia, which is an interesting, emerging market with passionate publishers and plenty of opportunities to explore.
Our mission is simple: set a new standard for co-agenting in the region. We’re building a team of keen negotiators with unparalleled knowledge, supported by our ANAI colleagues across Asia and around the world.

Agents: Van Thanh Hoang
Founded in Vietnam in 2023, the agency intends to make the most of Southeast Asia’s most commercial book market from our office in Hanoi, the heart of Vietnam. Our director, Van Thanh Hoang, studied Physics at college before her curiosity for other realms of human experience and knowledge kindled her love in books.
Van started out in Rights, spending a decade at one of the country’s most influential publishing houses, handling (mainly) translation rights, large scale international co-operation and publishing management. From this, she garnered unique insights into Vietnam’s publishing landscape, its development and how local publishers negotiate and acquire international titles.
With a rapidly thriving economy, Vietnam’s large, youthful population is hungry to learn and has disposable income to read for pleasure. Young readers’ appetite for a diverse range of themes combined with a competitive market means that eye-catching book design and vibrant, digital marketing and sales is becoming the norm: enticing readers and re-invigorating reading culture among younger generations.
ANA Hanoi will get the right books in front of Vietnam’s most talented editors so they can fight for them. We are our clients’ voice in Vietnam: here to connect, negotiate and grow.

Our team is totally dedicated to the process of professional negotiation in our territories. As an integral part of this, we are in daily contact with both proprietors and a wide range of publishers to conclude truly exceptional deals.

Recent deals that attracted considerable attention from publishers included: FINDING FREEDOM by Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, KLARA AND THE SUN by Kazuo Ishiguro and DISCOVERING THE INNER MOTHER by Bethany Webster.
We were thrilled to lead these negotiations and, ultimately, to foster successful co-operation between
proprietors and publishers.

Agents: Olga Lutova and Anastasia Falcon
Russian Federation only
ANA Moscow is led by its two directors, Olga Lutova and Anastasia Falcon.
Olga has a degree in Publishing and editing and, as a literary translator, has more than fifteen titles to her name. She started her publishing career in 1999 as an assistant editor at Vagrius and several other Russian houses where she worked as an editor and a rights manager. She joined ANA Moscow as an agent in 2016.
Anastasia has 8 years experience in publishing industry and a master’s degree in Comparative literature. She started as a foreign rights assistant at one of the largest publishing houses in Russia and joined ANA’s Moscow office in 2019.
Established in 1992, Ludmilla Sushkova led ANA Moscow from 1996 to her death in September 2023. She studied English and Spanish at Moscow’s Institute of Foreign Languages and then joined the Soviet Copyright Agency, where she worked for over a decade before moving to Andrew Nurnberg Associates. She led a four-strong team of well-respected agents bringing together many years’ experience of Russian publishing and agenting before dying in September 2023 after a short illness. She not only served as CEO of the Moscow agency, but stood as one of the most prominent figures in Russian publishing and a mentor to many. Her contributions to our work are immeasurable.
We encourage all our clients to offer only territorially-bounded licences for the Russian Federation only instead of World rights.
We strongly condemn Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine. It is not our war and we look forward to peace.
