Having always been an avid reader and enjoyed word games and puzzles, I discovered a flair for languages at school and went on to study Modern Languages at the University of East Anglia. I spent my third year working as a language assistant at two grammar schools in Saarbrücken, Germany. During my final year, I realised that I wanted to put these skills and passions to use professionally and applied for UEA's MA in Literary Translation. Since then, I have been working in and near Norwich, UK, as a freelance translator of literary and creative writing from German and French to English.
To get your message across, you need a little flair and a grasp of style that matches your words. I offer literary and creative translations from German and French to English. I have worked on translations for everyone from self-published to indie publishers, through to large publishing houses, specialising mainly in children's and crime fiction. I love word play and books that make me smile, and I would love to help bring more uplifting reads into the world in English.
