My usual topics are of a more technical nature but then I wanted to try my hand at thrillers/novels which worked out very well. Taking the characters' view and weighing every word, every nuance, was interesting and fun.
By now I have translated these books:
Love Target by Heidi Loeb Hegerich (novel)
Jump Cut (German title: Bildsprung) by Libby Fischer Hellmann (thriller)
as well as four shorter novels which are not yet in print.

I am a translator by training. My literary translation journey started at university in Lima, Peru when I was a student who needed to finish projects for the literary translation workshops every day. We translated essays from George Orwell, for example, as well as other contemporary British and American writers. In the German language, we translated writers like Thomas Mann, Hermann Hesse and Friedrich Nietzsche, Christa Wolf, etc. I love literary translation.

Working on the English translation of "The Anti-Semite Makers", a political volume by Abraham Melzer, a German Jew who is highly critical of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and who resents the manner in which even Jews who fit that description are labeled "Anti-Semites" by the Israeli government and its supporters. We are looking for an English-language publisher. German publisher: Westend, Berlin

Herr Melzer has just been nominated for the Alternative Nobel Peace Prize.

Native speaker of US English with Ph.D. in German Literature from the University of CA-Berkeley. I started my literary translating career while still in graduate school, translating Early Modern German texts associated with my dissertation, and have continued on from there. Most recently, I have translated some of Rainer Maria Rilke's short stories and an "indie" young adult novel by an up-and-coming author. My aim is always to make the English text sound perfectly fluid and native.

I am a published writer of fiction and I write in collaboration with a filmmaker in writing film scripts.
I have over fifteen years of experience as a translator in many areas, and in terms of literary works, beginning in 2013 and via agencies, have ended up translating short stories, poems, songs, the occasional play and film script, a few children’s books, philosophical essays, and literary criticism. It would be a pleasure for me to do more of the same.
