Pamela Cologna – Translator

Italian literary translator with 20+ years' experience: YA, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, history, science-fiction, drama, poetry.


I'm a literary translator who works on many different genres. If you don't see yours in my profile, don't give up! Contact me, I'm full of surprises :-)
In 2017, an Italian publisher I translated for won one of the most prestigious awards: the "National Award for Translation", awarded by Italy's Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities. They won it in part thanks to my translation of Kate Cambor's Gilded Youth.
In their words: "Basti ricordare la traduzione, a opera di Pamela Cologna, di Gioventù dorata di Kate Cambor, che Harold Bloom considera una narrazione meravigliosa leggibile come un romanzo di Balzac." (Suffice it to mention the translation, by Pamela Cologna, of Kate Cambor's Gilded Youth, which Harold Bloom considers a wonderful narrative readable like a Balzac novel.)
Isn't it great?
