About Yael Cahane-Shadmi

Hi! I'm a commercial translator, translating from English into Hebrew and specializing in marketing, economics, lifestyle and fashion.

I also translate lectures simultaneously from Hebrew into English by typing the translation, which is projected onto a screen for the audience, to be read in real time.

I teach Commercial translation at the translation studies program at Beit Berl College, Israel since 2015.

Being part of my professional community is important to me, and that is why I'm a member of both Israel Translators' Association (ITA) and the American Translators Association (ATA). I'm also a recognized translator by the ITA (no. 93). In the past I was the Deputy Chair of the ITA (2013-2017).

My translation of Beauty Bites Beast by Ellen Snortland came out in March 2016, published by El Halev non-profit organization and Geffen Publishing.

I have a BA in Economics and East Asian Studies and Translation & Revision diploma, both from Tel Aviv University. I worked as an in-house translator at one of Israel's major daily financial newspapers for five years.

My hobbies and interests include languages, Japan, escape rooms, cooking and baking, sewing, Pilates and social dancing (just in case that's relevant to your translation needs).
