A little about me

Emma Page Profile

I am a full-time freelance translator based in Brighton, UK. In addition to my commercial work, I volunteer as a communications manager for the award-winning translated literature publication Asymptote Journal. Before becoming a translator I worked as a bookseller and professional book reviewer.

I especially enjoy translating arts-related texts, as I have a longstanding personal interest in theatre, circus and performance. When not translating I read sci-fi, memoirs and literary fiction in all of my languages, knit, and keep freshwater fish.
