Skilled at reading older German handwriting styles, including Kurrent, I help families and organizations unlock the door to the past by translating 1930s and 40s personal correspondence and official documents from German to English, with sensitivity to and respect for Jewish history. Personal letters and administrative paperworkcontain crucial details on Jewish families’ personal experiences and must urgent concerns during the Nazi rise to power, Nazi persecution of the Jews, and the Holocaust. My strong background in history (BA in European History, MA in International Literatures) aids me in unlocking the specific histories contained in your family or organization’s documents.


I provide Spanish-English interpreting services for medical and community settings. With a Professional Certificate in Spanish Community Interpreting (Medical) from MIIS (Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey), I am trained in the standards of practice and codes of ethics relevant to this important role and experienced in accurately and reliably conveying the message, tone, and register for all parties.

"From 1914 to 1922 my grandfather received letters from various family members that he saved and finally gave to me.  More than 100 years later Abby translated the letters, including more than ten different handwritings, from German to English.  She walked with me and my ancestors through WW1 and beyond with compassion, integrity, and real personal investment.  Her translator’s notes often added context and clarification to the text.  Her research and attention to detail was admirable.  More than anything else, I appreciate Abby’s communication style.  Because she was so communicative, I was able to trust that the precious and personal details of my family’s travails were in the best of hands.  I highly recommend Abby Huber."
