Poetry Translator: Victoria Cox

Victoria Cox recently graduated from the University of Southampton with a degree in French and Spanish. She is from Somerset, England, however she currently lives in Bogota, Colombia, and teaches English at the Catholic University of Colombia.

Before moving to Colombia, Victoria spent a year living in Mexico teaching English at the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico. Prior to this she worked as a live-in au-pair with a Spanish family in Madrid. These experiences have fostered in her a keen interest in the Spanish speaking world and a desire to travel and work abroad, which inspired her to move to Colombia. Victoria is an avid writer and keeps a blog to record her travels. She hopes to visit other Latin American countries in the future.

In her spare time Victoria enjoys reading; living in Mexico and Colombia introduced her to the literature of these countries and helped to build on her university studies in this field. Victoria’s degree focused primarily on translation. She particularly enjoys translating poetry and works of fiction, thus enabling her to combine her two passions.

Victoria joined The Ofi Press translators team in early 2016. Welcome aboard Vicky!
