NWTN Boost Day

Really excited about speaking at the NWTN Boost Day today.

I've been asked to talk about my recent translation of Der Infinityy Pool: How I got to translate a novel, how it differs from commercial translation and any Pros and Cons.

There will be five other formidable speakers talking about their experiences of translating outside the world of commerce and I am looking forward to an invogorating day of sharing and learning.

Blog about my workshop

Thank you to Hanna Magedera for this wonderful write-up.

It is good to hear that at least one of the students was inspired by my talk.

Workshop at Uni Liverpool

On 6 March I was honored to be holding a workshop at the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Liverpool.

I was asked to speak about my experience of translating a novel in particular and about my work as a translator in general.

The students had tried their hand at translating a short excerpt from the novel beforehand and we compared and discussed the various solutions. 

At the end there was also some time for Q and A.

It was a very pleasant experience and I hope my enthusiasm for my work came across.

Website for Rollagranola

I am currently working on adapting the website for rollagranola for the German-speaking market.

To get my creative juices flowing they have even provided me with some samples.

Yumm!
