About Me

Hello world

Who I Am

I live in Rishon le Zion, Israel with my family: husband, 3 kids, and 2 dogs (although my kids are pretty grown up and two are independent already).

I grew up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada (mother tongue is English). I made Aliya (immigrated to Israel) in 1982.

I have  an M.A. in “English Literature and Literary Translation” from Bar Ilan University (2016).

I have a B.Sc. (University of Toronto) in Environmental Studies.

I am a registered member in good standing of the Israeli Translators Association (ITA).

My areas of expertise include academic translating and editing, especially — but not limited to — the field of mathematics education (2 books translated).

Here is a list (updated  end 2016 – update coming soon!) of all  books I have translated.

Another area that I have had a lot of experience is in translating RHYMING books for children. You can see some samples of the actual translations here.

Recommendations and praise from clients.
