Rebecca DeWald

Co-Chair of the Translators Association

Though I am an emerging literary translator, I have over ten years of commercial translation experience (marketing, legal, tourism, EU institutions) and have in recent years developed a strong focus on non-fiction and academic translations (a PhD in Translation Studies helps with that).

I am based in Scotland where I coordinate the monthly Translators' Stammtisch and Translation Theory Lab (both on Zoom at the moment) with the aim of fostering an active translation community: after all, we all studied languages to communicate, not to shout at our computer screens! I also coordinate the Literature and Translation programme at Cove Park, Scotland's international artist residency centre and a member of Literature Alliance Scotland, offering work residencies for writers and translators alike.
