I view translation as an essential exercise—one that serves as a reminder of the constant tension between the universal and the particular. My translation work has sharpened the way I look at texts for my own research and has made my writing more precise. With over a decade of experience, I have worked on translations ranging from academic articles and conference papers to restaurant menus and mobile apps. I deal primarily in French to English translations, though I have also rendered several Romanian texts into to English.
