Close-up of Gothic text about the catacombs of Vienna

I am a translator and copy-editor of academic texts with several years of experience working with major institutions and individual scholars primarily across Europe and the United States. I mostly translate academic texts from German to English, occasionally vice versa, and copy-edit English-language texts. My primary focus is on fields relating to modern European history, contemporary society, and the arts, but I also work in fields relating to North America, the Middle East, and the global context.

 

I have to date translated and/or copy-edited a large volume of publications and other text formats, including monographs, edited collections, peer-reviewed articles, funding applications, museum exhibitions, museum catalogues, and institutional website content. My translations have appeared in leading scholarly journals including Contemporary Austrian Studies, the Dubnow Institute Yearbook, the Journal of Austrian-American History, the Journal of Contemporary History, the Journal of Holocaust Research, and Zeitgeschichte. The individuals whose work I have translated include such renowned scholars as Moritz Csáky, Saul Friedländer, Dirk Rupnow, Heidemarie Uhl, and Ruth Wodak.

 

Below you can find a list of translated volumes, articles, and exhibitions, including samples of published open-access translations, and a list of institutional clients, past and present.

Please contact me if you are interested in soliciting my services for an academic translation or for copy-editing.
