Rosie Eyre – Translator

Literary translator from French, with experience in diverse adult fiction and non-fiction titles and books for young readers.

Overview

Literary translator from French and Spanish, a former mentee of the National Centre for Writing’s Emerging Translator Mentorship Programme 2020-21 and winner of Third Prize in the 2021 John Dryden Translation Competition. An avid linguist and lifelong bookworm, passionate about bringing the literatures of the French- and Spanish-speaking worlds to the Anglosphere!


I have collaborated with a range of publishers, arts organisations and authors in the English, French and Spanish-speaking markets, and always work closely and conscientiously with clients to ensure the final translation is delivered on time and on brief. My translations to date include fiction and non-fiction titles for both adults and younger readers, and I will always give an honest and accurate assessment of whether a project falls within my expertise and the time required, meaning you can be assured of a high-quality translation that reaches you well on schedule.


Published book translations to date include 'The Stranger in the Seine' by Guillaume Musso (Orion Books, July 2023), 'Survivor' by Julie Guinand (Strangers Press, 2022), '100 First Words for Toddlers: English-French Bilingual' (Rockridge Press, 2021) and Spanish photojournalist Juan Zarza's OXFAM-supported 'Caring in Times of Covid-19' (2020), as well as a range of forthcoming titles for young readers. A full list of these can be found in the 'Portfolio' section of my website below.
