Wendeline A. Hardenberg (b. 1983) first became curious about translation as an undergrad at Smith College, where she ultimately translated part of a Ravalec novel from French as a portion of her Honors Thesis in Comparative Literature.

Learning new languages and trying to translate from them is one her favorite hobbies. She lives in New Haven, Connecticut.
