Alice von Canstein

Alice von Canstein – Translator

Professional English to German translator with more than 20 years of experience focusing on historical literature, thriller and romance.

Overview

My name is Alice. I have always been intrigued by the beauty of words, both written as well as spoken which led me delve into my studies of English and Spanish.

While having translated a myriad of different texts touching on the subject of economy and especially raw materials and mining, my favourite work is that of translating books of literature. My preferred genres are historical literature, thriller and romance, but every book where I can learn something new about different cultures and countries is more than welcome.

I am working in the tranquility of my home near Cologne, accompanied by my lovely daughter and my cocker spaniel Leo, and when I am not translating, I can often be found kayaking on a lake or river.
