My name is Laura, and I’m a translator.
My job is to help stories cross borders.
On this site you can find out about some of the wonderful projects I’ve been involved in.
Maybe you’ll find a new story that you’ll fall in love with…
I translate into English, from Dutch, Italian and German. My literary interests are varied and my projects range from children’s picture books to adult novels and comics.
I’ve been a full-time literary translator since 2003, when I relocated to the Netherlands. I now live in a very tall, thin house on a canal in the centre of Amsterdam.
