Bio
"Let me propose a life path: grandparents of different nationalities, a good school education in which you learn to read, write, spell, construe and love your own language. Then roam the world, make friends, see life. Go back to education, but to take a technical or commercial degree, not a language degree. Spend the rest of your twenties and your early thirties in the countries whose languages you speak, working in industry or commerce but not directly in languages...Have your children. Then back to a postgraduate translation course. A staff job as a translator, and then go freelance. By which you are forty and ready to begin."
(Lanna Castellano, 1988: 133)
