We found wonderful translators for “Long Live The Emperor” after a couple weeks of researching. Alessandra and Francesca work together translating English into Italian professionally. This is a little about them directly from their website:
“We are professional literary translators belonging to the Italian Association of Translators and Interpreters as qualified members, and to the American Literary Translators Association. We were both born in Italy. After spending many years abroad honing our language skills, we are now living in Tuscany — the region of Florence, Siena, and Pisa, where good wine and food abound, and beautiful scenery meets the eye around every corner. We have an enormous library where books in English dominate. We keep improving our translation skills when we’re not working by reading the masterpieces of literature both in English and in Italian.”
Alessandra and Francesca have translated over 150 books in their 25 years of translating and we are so happy to have them as a part of our Summer Time Studios family for present and future translations of our work! We hope to have the Italian version of “Long Live The Emperor” released by the end of November!
