OCTS exists to bridge the gap between cultures and languages through the translation of Orthodox texts, and to help translators share their unique skills with the Orthodox world. Unlike other publishers and bookstores, we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to the entire process of creating high-quality Orthodox translations.
OCTS uses the most current and innovative publishing process, with a print-on-demand model. This means that our initial costs for publishing and printing are exceptionally minimal. Each book is printed in the USA or Europe as it is purchased, and delivered quickly to the buyer. When we sell a book, every dollar earned goes towards supporting future work for our organization. Your purchase of a book helps make new publications possible!
Although OCTS will not be accepting new proposals until later in 2019, it's not too soon to begin preparing!
