Helge Dascher has for 25 years translated texts with a dynamic relationship to images. A background in art history and literature has grounded her translation of over sixty graphic novels, many by artists who have broadened the medium’s storytelling range. Her translations included acclaimed titles such as Julie Delporte’s This Woman’s Work (co-translated with Aleshia Jensen, Drawn and Quarterly, 2019), Guy Delisle’s Hostage (Drawn and Quarterly, 2017) and Michel Rabagliati’s “Paul” books (Drawn and Quarterly, Conundrum). She also translates exhibitions, digital stories and films, most recently Theodor Ushev’s The Physics of Sorrow (with Karen Houle, NFB, 2019). A Montrealer, she works from French and German to English.
