Translations from Occitan to EnglishTranslations from Catalan to English

Having lived in Barcelona and become a fluent speaker there, I can offer my clients not only an in-depth knowledge of the linguistic components of Catalan texts but also direct experience and appreciation of the culture that surrounds and informs them.

Catalan, alongside French, was the major language of my MA training in literary translation and for which I also have the Nivell C qualification (minimum level required for official administration work in Catalonia) in 2006. I have translated poems and lyrics by Antònia Lladonet i Riera, Pau Riba, Josep Foix and Xavier Panades i Blas, subtitles for Barcelona TV and Windfall Films and online content for wine websites. I am currently preparing a new anthology of Catalan literature for Francis Boutle Publishers.
