Our team

Our translation network comprises seven freelance translators and one editor. Our translators are spread over two continents and live in Berlin, London, Massachusetts, and the rolling Scottish countryside. We all have an academic background in a history-related field or the history of art. 

Copy editor

Lance Anderson is from the UK and has lived in Berlin since 1998, when he came to the city to study art history for one year at the FU. He is a specialist in editing English translations of historical, art, or literary content. He reads all translations submitted by the team and checks them for accuracy and style. Depending on availability, he also accepts editing projects of texts written directly in English.
