Found in Translation

My friend Ole Jorgensen has recently released a video “My Life as Inventor, Designer and Explorer”, the latest in the series of videos about his life. Ten years ago, Ole and I did a project together, the Russian Film Music DVD. My part of the job was the English subtitles. Dreaming of literary research in my young years, I ended up working on more down-to-earth things like financial services. I am a good reader, though, and I love talking about literature. Today, I lead groups for the learners of English, including one on translations of classical literature. The project with Ole, as I see it today, helped me to connect the two professional domains, international business development and language studies.
