Nat Paterson,

academic and literary translator


I graduated from Lancaster University in 2014 with a first class degree in languages, and gained my MA in Literary Translation from the University of East Anglia two years later. I developed my interest and expertise in academic translation while translating G. Poli and G. Calcagno, Echoes of a Lost Voice: Encounters with Primo Levi (2017, Elstree: Vallentine Mitchell).  This entailed extensive research with archivists to identify historical and literary references, which informed my writing of the comprehensive and detailed endnotes. 

I have since co-translated another non-fiction book, Y Tesson, Champagne Billecart-Salmon: Two Centuries of Adventure (2018, Paris: Tallandier); and translated a wide range of shorter texts, including journal articles, lyrics for the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and fiction for adults and for children.
