I taught Translation Studies and German at Aston University from 2002–2009. I am now based in Berlin, translating scholarly texts in the social sciences and humanities.
My research interests are in the history of translation, translation and censorship and cultural translation. At present my focus is on translation practices in museums and the museum as a translation zone.
With Michaela Wolf of Graz University, I founded the international journal Translation Studies: www.tandf.co.uk/journals/rtrs. Michaela and I were the journal’s editors for its first five years, from 2008–2012.
