Arielle took her first literary translation course as an undergraduate during a semester abroad in France. She was hooked within minutes. Years later, her dream career became a reality when Baraka Books published her first translated work of fiction in 2013. Over the past ten years, Arielle has developed relationships with publishers, translators, and other industry professionals across Quebec, France, and English-speaking Canada. Her goal is to bring standout French-language content in a range of genres to English-speaking readers. She has a soft spot for snappy dialogue and big emotions.
