right now theres only arabic but the author is thinking of traslating it into other languages.

the story : “The protagonist’s name is Sultan. He is a 15-year-old Emirati boy,” says Sedki. “He gets engrossed in this fictional sport of Gold Ring. It revolves around falconry but it’s not violent. There’s the issue of the bond between falcon and falconer. Sultan is going to be challenged in the story. Really challenged.”



this is also intresting:
Sedki( the author) has visited Japan several times and believes that Japanese and Emirati cultures share certain similarities, including a devotion to etiquette, tradition and a strong emphasis on family.

Sedki says this similarity has helped him work with Japanese artists. Certain practicalities have also helped. “As far as the literature goes,” Sedki says. “We both turn pages in the same direction, right to left.” This has meant that Gold Ring could be presented in the traditional tankobon format.

Western publishers have famously struggled with the Japanese page-turning direction. Many resorted to a technique known as “flipping”, which reversed the cells of every page, creating a mirror image of each book for the Western reader. This caused certain problems, though, such as the reversing of recognised logos, text on T-shirts or billboards and spatial opposites such as accelerator and break pedals on a car.
