Overview

I have translated more than 80 titles for well-known German publishing houses. I am the German translator of successful British Author Katherine Webb ("The Diasappearance", "The Hiding Places") and of Taylor Jenkins Reydt ("The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo")
I have translated several Regency Romances recently and particularly enjoy making sure that the language is appropriate to the period. As a translator I generally love to lend my voice to the author, to find the right tone and the adequate words to give the German readers as much joy in reading the book. I identify with the author to find the best way to transfer his or her work to German. I love language with all it's subtleties and nothing makes me happier than having found the exactly right word to describe a feeling, a landscape or a character.

Babette was wonderful to work with. She proofread the German translation of one of my books and worked efficiently; she had the project done ahead of time. I would love to work with her again!
