Following the death of Patricia Crampton on 1 December 2016, we would like to share this piece which first appeared in Swedish Book Review 2008:2. In it Patricia Crampton talks about her sixty years as a translator, a fascinating account of a career that began with the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials and at the time of writing was still continuing with Miffy, with more than 200 children's books and over 50 books for adults in between.
