Sally Ashton is a writer and translator. Originally from Yorkshire, England, she is currently based in Berlin and when she is not travelling can be found in Neukölln.
Sally completed her Bachelor’s degree in English Literature and Creative Writing at Warwick University and spent several years living in Austria, France, Canada and Spain before completing a Master’s in Translation and Interpreting in London. She now translates into English from Spanish, French and German. Sally concentrates on literary and academic translations, although also works on marketing and international development-related texts.
Since the age of fifteen, she has been supported by The Writing Squad, an Arts Council-funded support programme for young creatives in North England. Her first novel, Controller, was published in 2014 and her translation of LS6, Mario Crespo’s Spanish novel about her home city, Leeds, in 2016. Her second novel has been in the works for several years and will hopefully be completed by 2019.
Sally’s favourite place in Berlin is Tempelhofer Feld, especially when it is empty during the week in winter.
