Rolf Rhodes - Translator

Munich, Germany

An author myself, I understand the importance of conveying the feeling of a text in translation over and above its literal meaning.

I studied English, German, and Classical literature at the University of Cape Town where I gained my first experience translating texts from German to English and vice versa, either freehanded or with the help of CAT-tools. I have distinctions in Classical and German literature, native in both German and English.
