What our clients say
“Lucy Jones does a masterful job of conveying that very German tone, while at the same time finding passable English equivalent for distinctly German terms (…) In her translation, Jones passes on the feeling of intimacy and despair that Stelling has conjured within the four walls of Resi’s broom closet, never violating her privacy and respite.”

Ich weiß nicht, ob ich Ihnen schon gesagt habe, dass ich ein großer Fan Ihrer Übersetzungen bin.
Vielen Dank für Ihre wunderbaren Übersetzungen, sie lesen sich ganz wunderbar.
“This is an extremely funny book. All credit to translator Lucy Jones here, for the humour is largely in the writing, with rhythms, bathos and the subversion of expectations all delivering laughs.”
Review of Higher Ground by Ann Morgan
“[P]assionate self-reflection, political insight and a fierce commitment to the art of fiction on practically every page . ..”
