My Services

Medical Translation

(Spanish and German to English)

My areas of expertise include clinical texts such as:
• Clinical trials & oversight
• User interfaces (UI)
• Medical journal articles

 

My high professional standard means:
• Staying up-to-date on specialized medical terminology
• Proficiency with CAT tools and the latest software
• Continuing education and training through ATA and specialized industry programming

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.

 

Testimonials

Brendan Shea

Switzerland

"I fully recommend Abigail Huber's translation service. She translated our over 100-year-old family documents from old German to English, and she did a fantastic job. Abby responded quickly to our inquiry, offered a clear and accurate quote, and returned the finished translation in a short time frame. We have used a few different translators before, and she is my top recommendation."
