I translate literature, from prose to poetry,
mainly contemporary.
Related fields are welcome--history, music,
any field in the arts and humanities.
Yes, I enjoy translating other types of documents
as well especially for smaller jobs.
My experience is broad. Please inquire!

I earned a PhD from Harvard (1967) in
Germanic Language and Literature and am now
self-employed, after teaching German and
Comparative literature at McMaster
University, Hamilton, Ontario, for thirty-five
years. Modern German and Austrian writers a specialty.
Associations: American Translators Association,
American Literary Translators Association,
Modern Language Association.

Books translated or edited now number seven from various fields,
with two more in the works.

Pricing: my rates vary, depending on the difficulty
and time constraints. In general, copy editing and revising are less than straight translation.
My rates are reasonable and negotiable.
