About us


Since 1970



Two Translators
One fee





We are a team of former History and German educators trained in Germany and the US who have learned the Old Script in elementary school, used in in high school, and thereafter in personal communication.
In our 40th year of deciphering and translating the old scripts we are patronized by translators, genealogists, and private institutions alike.

We work as a team if the level of difficulty demands it, but all work is being reviewed by another specialist to assure the highest level of accuracy. Our fee for deciphering, translation, and transcription is based on the projected time needed for the entire unit.

Please ask for more information about our services, and tell us about your documents.
