Service Packages

Gist translation: For people who have: letters from family members, old pictures, journals, diaries, etc. written in other languages.

Includes A brief translation of each document outlining the most important information: names, places mentioned, and a brief summary. Then you can decide to translate all or none of it.

Consultation with a linguist: If you have old letters or documents and you would like to know what they say. This is a good starting point for research into family history.

Includes time with a linguist who will go over the materials with you.

Full translation: You are doing genealogical research and you hit a wall with a single document (a single birth/marriage certificate). This document can lead to further research.

Includes A full translation with matching formatting.
