She's an Astronomer – International Editions

Our She’s an Astronomer series is part of the International Year of Astronomy – and what better way to be international than to provide some posts in languages other than English! Thanks to Aida for inspiring this addition – she told me in an email she had translated her interview into Spanish for her parents and a light bulb went on. We’ll start with Aida’s interview in Spanish, shortly to be followed by posts in the native tongues of Hanny (Dutch) and Vardha (German). This idea turned out to be popular the non-native English speaking women involved, who provided their translations much more quickly than I’ll be able to post them!

    What an excellent plan! I feel a little left out now, not being fluent in Spanish any more. Perhaps Fluffy should translate hers into Welsh – that would make things interesting 😀 Great thinking Aida 🙂

  3. Hanny says :

    Yeah, nice idea! 😉

  4. Karen Masters says :

    Gemma should definitely translate hers into Welsh if she’s up for it. I should apologize to her for forgetting she speaks Welsh!

    Awesome job ladies!
