I have been a translator through since 2011. I earned my Bachelor's degree in English at Harvard University in 2010 and my Master's degree in Medieval Literature from the University of Toronto in 2015. I have extensive experience with German, having studied at Harvard and in Munich, as well as having passed the Centre for Medieval Studies' German language proficiency examination. During my years at the University of Toronto I read academic texts primarily in German. I have also taught seminars on translating German academic texts into English to PhD students. My translation experience in this language covers primarily technical, academic, and marketing prose, including manuals and instructions, tourism documents, and promotional materials.

As a student in the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto, from which I graduated with an M.A. in 2015, I focused on medieval German Marian poetry and read extensively in Modern German.

I studied Latin for one and a half years at Harvard and for two years at the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto. I have passed the Centre's M.A. level Latin examination.

I also have experience with medieval languages including Old English and Old Norse as well as with modern French.

Also an accomplished creative writer, I am able to adapt the style of my translations to suit my clients' needs.

I look forward to collaborating with you!
