Irina Kappelhof-Costea (1978, Bucharest) graduated English and Romanian Language and Literature at the University of Bucharest and then General Linguistics at the University of Amsterdam. She started as a subtitling editor in Romania, translated her first book and then moved to The Netherlands. Since 2007 she has been translating for the European institutions, from a widening array of languages. Living in Antwerp she had the chance to fall in love with Flemish literature, so one of her hopes is that she can someday transpose the dry, dark humour of Dimitri Verhulst into Romanian, where his books would probably land right at home.
