Michelle Morgan (mjbookeditor) | 15 comments Hi Iman. :) Thanks for the comment! I am actually half French, but I've forgotten almost everything I learned in high school French classes - to my mother's dismay. :-/ Can I still be a proud French girl?? Ha ha.

Where have you been looking for a translator? Send me a message and I'll try to point you in the right direction. I might have a couple of ideas. ;)

I think you can still be a proud french girl, it's all about the spirit ! Ha ha. In fact, I think we are all citizen of the world ^_^

About the translator thing, I've been looking around me basically : through social network, network of people I met on fictionpress.com, twitter and also through my brother's network who has been living in Canada for more than a decade now and knows a lot of bilinguals who have done translating work before. He introduced me someone a few months ago actually, who translated 2chapters, but his style didn't match, it didn't felt like an english written fantasy at all. Probably because the guy is not a big reader? Don't know. I'm guessing that because I know translating is hard and that you have to be a little bit writing yourself to do it right.

Anyhow, I've then been looking on random websites and even met a few translators at meetup events in Paris, but the price just discouraged me. Do you know people who can translate a french fantasy to english?

Thanks !
