The Cretan Way

This was a two-part book with a practical guide to walking a new route across Crete based on the E4 footpath as well as a travelogue by the author describing his own experience of walking the route. This project involved extensive research into the geographical and historical references as well as precision and clarity for the walking instructions. The author’s unique writing style had to be respected whilst ensuring coherence and fluidity in the translation. Overall a really exciting and rewarding project.

The project involved the translation of voiceovers texts and the preparation of English-language subtitles. As well as being sensitive to the time restrictions for the voiceover and the subtitles, this project entailed detailed research to ensure a well-balanced approach to describing local places and legends.
