Bio



As a linguist with aspirations to work on language documentation and revitalisation within endangered language communities, I am in awe of language in all its manifestations and the complexity and ingenuity of linguistic structures. As such, I consider translation not as the replacement of one word for another, but as an art form through which one adapts cultural peculiarities for the target readership while preserving the subtleties and humour of the original text. Having traveled a great deal and lived abroad, I have ties to people from diverse cultural, religious and economic backgrounds. This experience has given me a deep understanding of linguistic variation across social strata within a linguistic community. I have translated texts for political groups, creatives and advertisers, which has sharpened my awareness of stylistic variation in translation and editing.
