Alice Banks is a literary and creative translator from French and Spanish into English, based in Madrid. She also works as a copy editor & writer in the English language.

My name is Alice and I am a literary and creative translator from French and Spanish into English with a particular interest in contemporary and feminist literature.

In 2019 I graduated from Bangor University with a First Class BA Hons in French where I also received the Barbara Saunderson Prize for best in year. In September 2020 I completed the MA in Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia where throughout a variety of classes and workshops, I was able to practise my translation and build a varied portfolio.

I am currently working as a freelance translator and copy editor, whilst also volunteering for the esteemed literary translation journal, Asymptote and the European Literature Network, a brilliant organisation dedicated to the promotion of literature in translation. I am open to literary, creative and academic translation work from both French and Spanish, as well as copy editing and writing work.
