Proofreading course learner translates top book

 

Proofreading course student, Alice Fagiolo, has been busy translating a book that has been featured on BBC Brazil and the Brazilian media.

The book is called Dark Writer, and features a mysterious author writing an apocalyptical story set in England.

She gave top Brazilian magazine Superinteressante an interview about it: see the cutting (below).

Alice tells us: “I’m in charge of translating the book into English. So far it’s been quite successful. Sir Barry Cunningham, who was Harry Potter’s editor, seems to be quite intrigued by it. So I hope the book gets published in England!

“I’m very proud of myself!”
