    I think Titan paid them a licensing fee to use the English translations that already existed, because they had to be done as part of the CBS deal months before. But it was not enough to cover the costs of the translation and editing. Both Helga and Keith were hired and paid by Cross Cult. (Well, that's what I was told. I am only one of the authors. I don't know the specifics. ;) )

    Yes, I was hired and paid by Cross Cult. The translation that was done was good enough for licensing approval, but it was a literal translation rather than a literary one, and it needed polishing to work as a work of published fiction in English.
