Bio: Carolyn Yohn translates French and Hungarian legal and academic texts into American English under the name Untangled Translations. In 2015, the Consulate General of France in San Francisco added her to their list of translators officially approved to translate credentials and personal documents. She is a regional ambassador for the Northern California Translators Association and was a featured speaker for the American Translators Association.

Carolyn covered the basics of quality control for translators at a popular live session in Chicago (November 2014) and a sold-out webinar (June 2015). You can find her article on credentials translation in the Savvy Newcomer blog maintained by the ATA. Her first book-length translation — Comments on the North American Travels of La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt, 1794–1798 — hits the shelves on November 20, 2015.

When she's not clacking away at the keyboard, you can find Carolyn hiking, swimming, and painting (watercolors). Find her on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook to learn more!
