As a Classicist, translating literature is one of my biggest pleasures. Unfortunately, one of the hardest to come by, outside the academic world or the pro bono challenges of cultural associations. As a specialist in Ancient Greek tragedy, I have found that translating for modern theatre is equally fascinating. As a comics addict, I would be more than happy to venture in the field of translating speech balloons!

My interest in books and literature began at a very early age and developed along with a talent for languages and the written word. I discovered a particular flair for literary translation whilst at university studying Joint Honours French and German and, upon completing my degree, was offered a postgraduate teaching post on this basis. I am now especially interested in developing this area of expertise in my translation business though for the moment I have no specific experience to offer.
