The translators of our CD-Editionen


Michael und Janet Berridge, London

A partnership forged in the early 1990s, uniting the skills and experience of two qualified translators (and amateur musicians), who together translate from seven languages (including Latin) into English.
Janet Berridge (formerly Selman) studied languages and commerce in England and worked in the music industry in Cologne for 10 years in the 1980s, and therefore knows the business inside out.
Michael Berridge studied classics at Cambridge University and German & English at Wuppertal and has translated for a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors.

From 1990 to 2003 they translated all of MusikKomm.’s PR and press documentation including the Popkomm and KlassikKomm catalogues. They translate CD booklets, artist biographies, press statements and artist contracts for many independent labels in Germany (such as Berlin Classics, cpo, Profil, MDG, solo musica, SCM Hänssler), for the Stuttgart and Zurich ballet companies and other companies, agencies and artists in the music and entertainment industry.
