I MAKE YOUR BUSINESS MY BUSINESS
because your success becomes my success
That is my company's claim. Hello, my name is Tanya Quintieri and I am a US citizen with German and Puerto Rican roots. Currently, I am at home in the Czech Republic. I do not translate literature on a regular basis. But when I do, I do it because I love a book.
Depending on the subject, I will translate into either German or English (US). I know, that sounds weird. But some things come more naturally to me in one of either language.
So far, I have translated some IT books, two children's books, a book about the psychological reasons behind love, a book on relationship advice, and a bunch of other smaller projects, including short stories related to songs by David Bowie.
If I do offer to translate your book then it's not because of the money. As a professional translator with my own small network of trusted colleagues, I have far more lucrative jobs in my day to day business. It's because I am passionate about the topic you chose for your book.
So, happy writing, I'd say! :)
