Classical Music and Arts Translator and Copy Editor

I am an ATA-certified translator (French into English, Spanish into English) specializing in the translation of texts related to vocal, instrumental, and chamber music. As an active choral singer with a background in string instruments (violin, viola, Celtic harp, and ukulele), I understand the messages you want to convey and can help you communicate clearly and effectively with English-speaking audiences.

I also provide translation and copy editing services for a variety of clients in the visual and performing arts. I have earned a Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing and have extensive experience using Chicago style and following clients’ style guides.

My professional translation experience includes documents such as:

  • Concert program notes
  • CD liner notes
  • Artist bios
  • Festival guides
  • Academic journal articles
