A rather large passion of mine is that of translation. I do Spanish to English, and I think I’ve got a good handle on the practice. This section is where I post examples of short translations I have done, as well as some of my thoughts regarding translation theory and practice. I’ve  linked to the various subpages below, along with links to blog posts about Translation.
