After the English translation of The Little Prince was published in the USA during the Second World War, at the same time as the French text, the number of foreign language versions continued to grow from the late 1940s onwards. The Little Prince is now available in some 253 languages and dialects, and there are many languages which can boast several translations.

Alongside L’Etranger (The Outsider) by Camus, it is the most frequently translated work of French literature in the world and every year, from Japan to South America, new editions are offered in huge print-runs (47 editions in 2007 in South Korea).
