NB: German --> English, for literary texts ; German <---> English for all others.

My primary specialism is the translation of German literary texts, including prose, poetry and criticism. I also have vocational experience in retail and tourism.

As part of my Oxford degree, I translated literary texts on a weekly basis. In German this included Christoph Hein, Heinrich Heine and Wolfgang Emmerich; in English this included Oscar Wilde, Evelyn Waugh and David Foster Wallace. Consequently I am comfortable with texts in both languages from the nineteenth century to the present.

For Roly's Fudge Pantry (Salisbury) I have translated menus and set phrases used for interaction with German-speaking customers. In a voluntary capacity I was an assistant interpreter in Salisbury Cathedral for German-speaking visitors.

My own work as a published author, and extensive analysis of German and English literary texts in the academic sphere, inform my translation.
