Sphinx agency for publishing & translation and distribution was founded 2006 at Cairo as the first Literary Agency in the Arab World. 2007 the Agency was developed to be a distribution Agency and a Publishing House.
Sphinx agency had a great influence on Arab publishers, authors and cultural institutions to have new instinctive possibilities and accessibilities to the international publishers, that contributed in supporting the publishing and distribution process from and to the Arab world.
Sphinx Agency also was keen on paving the way for the growth of new entities at the Arab world to support the translation of the Arabic book to variety of foreign languages. The agency today is dealing with many international publishing houses, on the other hand it buys the rights of translating foreign titles into Arabic to publish it through the department of publishing or through other Arab publishing houses.
