A mutually beneficial relationship with clients of long standing ...
My career as an editorial consultant with the World Bank began in 2001. Since then I have edited hundreds of books and studies on a wide range of topics. I collaborate closely with the Bank’s professional staff and outside authors from all around the world.
I first worked with the Inter-American Development Bank in 1994, but our cooperation became more intensive after 2005, when I established an enduring relationship with the Bank's Education Division.
In 2016 I began an editorial collaboration with the International Renewable Energy Agency. I have edited, revised, or summarized more than 25 research and policy reports for the agency. The most challenging assignments require me to distill technical information for presentation to high-level audiences, such as this piece done for a G-20 energy meeting in 2018.
Since 2010, I have translated three books (The Empire and the Five Kings in 2018, The Genius of Judaism in 2016, and La Guerre Sans l’Aimer in 2011, excerpted in the New Republic) and countless columns for French writer Bernard-Henri Lévy. My translations of Lévy's play, Hôtel Europe, which premiered in Sarajevo in June 2014, have been performed in revised form in many cities—most recently at New York’s Public Theater in November 2018 and London’s Cadogan Hall in June 2018. A tour of 20 European cities—with the play to be adapted for each presentation—begins in March 2019 in the run-up to the European elections in May 2019.
For Campus France, the agency responsible for promoting postsecondary education in France to international students, I have translated a wide range of materials, including high-level strategies, promotional materials, contracts, press kits, and descriptions of French degree programs. I have worked for Campus France since 1999, shortly after the agency’s founding.
