the translation of a chapter of a book by Julian Barnes
This is the example of my literary translation of the book History of the World in 10 1/2 Chapters by Julian Barnes. The Original: Let me tell you something about her. It's that middle stretch of the night, when the curtains leak no light, the only street-noise is the grizzle of a returning Romeo, and the birds haven't begun their routine yet cheering business. She's lying on her side, turned away from me. I can't see her in the dark, but from the hushed swell of her breathing I could draw you the map of her body. When she's happy she can sleep for hours in the same position. I've watched over her in all those sewery parts of the night, and can testify that she doesn't move. It could be just down to good digestion and calm dreams, of course; but I take it as a sign of happiness.
Hi, If you are looking for quality literary translation from and into Russian, Ukrainian and English, I should be glad to assist you! Being a Russian native speaker, I have a Master degree in English and American studies. I graduated from the Odessa National University in 2005 and have been working as a translator, writer and rewriter since then. I am a responsible employee and beware of deadlines. I hope that my academic knowledge and cultural background will come useful in performing accurate literary translations. Best wishes, Tanya Pochtennykh
