Karuna Translations

Antigonish County, NS


As an editor and translator, I help businesses, cultural institutions, and government entities improve their communications. My areas of expertise are marketing and corporate communications; international development and government; tourism; and art, culture, and film.

I translate from German and French into English and edit documents written by native and non-native English speakers. I offer the following editing services: bilingual editing; plain language editing; substantive, stylistic, and copy editing; and proofreading.

My clients include international development organizations and consulting companies, government development agencies, private-sector corporations, film schools, and television and film production companies.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies (specializing in Film Production) with a minor in Creative Writing from Concordia University.

I reside in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, and travel widely. I have lived in London, Berlin, and Montreal.
