Charlotte Coombe

Charlotte Coombe is a British translator based between Marrakesh and the UK, working from French and Spanish into English. Her translation of Abnousse Shalmani’s Khomeini, Sade and Me (2016) won a PEN Translates award in 2015 and is her second title with World Editions. After a decade translating creative texts in gastronomy, the arts, travel and tourism, lifestyle, fashion and advertising, her love of literature drew her to literary translation, with a particular focus on women’s writing.

Her work is published online by Palabras Errantes, and she is currently translating a collection of short stories by the Mexican author Rosamaría Roffiel (seeking a UK publisher).
