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!

Sought and found in translation

Jessica Norrie has written a lovely blog entry about her experience of having her book translated into French by Isabelle Rouault-Röhlich and into German by myself.

It is interesting to have a look at the process from the other side, although I did have the privilege of being able to consult with and ask questions and clarifications from the author in the course of the translation, which more than often we translators are not able to do.

So a huge thank you to Jessica for the collaboration and for her kind words and commendation:

Me with "my" book

Here I am with the paper version of the novel I translated.

As normally all my work is submitted electronically, it is nice to hold an actual physical proof of your work in hands!

Book translation published

I am thrilled to announce that my translation of Jessica Norrie´s The Infinity Pool is out on Amazon now!

After more than 2.5 years of work, much pondering, lots of research, many consultations, writing, checking, re-writing, lots of waiting and even study-holidays on a Greek island, it is fantastic to finally see the result.
And a very good one it is too, I believe. Thanks to everyone involved.
