We are Tom and Kira Howes, and we have been partners in translation ever since we got married in 2013. We currently live near Washington, D.C., U.S.A. with our beautiful daughter.

Tom is currently working on his PhD in philosophy and has studied both philosophy and theology in great depth both in the U.S.A. and in Rome, Italy. Kira has a bachelor's degree in the humanities; reads Italian, Spanish, and English; is trained in legal research and writing; and has experience working with Chicago, APA, and MLA styles. Both of us have a strong passion for language, history, philology, science, theology, and philosophy. 

Now that English is becoming the new lingua franca, we are excited to use this passion and our skills to spread your ideas across languages and cultures!

“I have always been very pleased with your work because of the accuracy and elegance with which you have translated my texts, which sometimes contained philosophical concepts that are quite difficult to express in English.” - Msgr. Ángel Rodríguez Luño
“Tom and Kira have the gift of translation: they go into the Italian text moving from the minds of those who wrote it and translate it into English so that it is clear to the minds of those who read it. I have experienced their timely and accurate work several times, so I'm very grateful and I promote them with joy!” - Prof. Ilaria Vigorelli, P.U.S.C.
