Carla Vlad


Carla Vlad was born in 1980 into a family with a hybrid cultural background of German, Romanian, and Hungarian. She studied English language and literature and Romance philology at the University of Freiburg, with the main areas of research in psychoanalytic literary criticism and literary translation. After completing her Magister Artium degree, Carla decided to follow her vocation and pursue literary translation, the challenging art of rendering a literary text into another language, of sensing its subtleties and depths of meaning, of transfusing the lines with the translator’s own interpretation, of shaping the language anew—the "dress of thought," as Samuel Johnson put it—yet never dispossessing it of the author's own distinctive mark. Carla Vlad presently works as a proofreader at the University of Freiburg and as a freelance literary translator.
