I have worked as a literary translator and editor for Marcus Meesters on his children's book series: The Central Park Tales, originally written in Dutch.
"I hired Talya Rubin to do the literary translation of my children’s books. She transformed my rough English translation into a proper English text. After that, I hired her to give me editorial advice on the text and the story lines. Her advice was very useful and helped bring the books to a higher level. Talya is a lover of children’s books and that was evident in the work she did for me. Her edits are sharp and critical, based on her knowledge of creative writing, but she also knows and respects the essence of the book, and that can only be understood from the heart. It's what makes her an excellent editor of children's books." - Marcus Meesters
I also assist poets with their manuscripts, have translated texts from French to English, and created marketing and website copy for a major arts centre in Australia.
