Literary Translator

I am honored to have been selected by the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA) as one of its 2020 Virtual Travel Fellows, a distinction awarded annually to emerging literary translators.

At the September 2020 virtual conference of the Oregon Society of Translators and Interpreters, I presented a session on research methods and online resources for translators of historical texts.

I am currently working on a translation of 19th-century French author Prosper Mérimée’s La Guzla into English. Excerpts are available on the Spurl Editions blog and on the Translators Aloud YouTube channel.

The translation is beautiful . . . A gift to the English-speaking world! — author citing translated poem in a history book
