I often think that academics who work in translation studies need to learn more about the practice of translation (some have never translated!) and also that translators might want to read more of the research that’s carried out in the field of translation studies. In terms of the latter, you might want to read some of the articles available online at Meta.
Originally from Chicago, I lived in southern Sweden for nearly 5.5 years, and moved to southern Wales in September 2006. I completed a Ph.D. translation studies in June 2009 at Swansea University, with a dissertation on the translation of children's literature.
Now I live in Norwich, England, where I am a lecturer at the University of East Anglia, and I also work as a translator, writer, and editor.
