Unfortunately I don't think there will be any translations for the book, at least I haven't heard of any such plans yet! To be clear - this is not my book, the publisher just hired to make custom illustrations for it. :) "Nordic Tales" is part of the ongoing "Tales" book series by Chronicle Books (USA). The stories in the book are old versions of actual folk tales.
