Do you need help translating a ketubah? A handwritten letter? Reading the names on a tombstone? Or translating a yizkor book for your family’s shtetl? Most Yiddish documents are actually a mishmash of Yiddish, German, Hebrew, Aramaic, and English. Multilingual documents are my specialty. Let my polyglot training and experience as a Yiddish translator help you. As a Yiddish translator, I provide Yiddish to English translation services for all types of Yiddish, including Chassidic / Chassidish, Litvak / Litvish, YIVO standard (“klal Yiddish”), and Soviet Yiddish orthography.

Your family’s history is waiting to be uncovered.

Customer Satisfaction

A. J. G. from New York writes,
“I will be most happy to refer others to you and very much appreciate your translation of this treasured family document. I had been unsuccessful for more than 2 decades in getting it translated…thank you very much.”
