Accurate, reliable and prompt Hebrew to English and English to Hebrew translations by an ATIO Certified Translator who is a native Hebrew speaker. No project is too big or too small!
I am an ATIO (Association of Translators and Interpreters in Ontario) Certified Translator and an ATA member with 35 years of experience in Hebrew to English and English to Hebrew translation. My areas of expertise include Aerospace, Business Administration, Information Technology, Education, Israeli government documents, chess and Bridge. Among others, I have written Hebrew abstracts to about 100 business books written in English, and translated more than 10 business and IT books from English to Hebrew - a partial list can be found at the bottom of this page.
I provide translation services from Hebrew to English and from English to Hebrew, as well as proofreading/ revision services in Hebrew, at competitive rates. I have got clients in Canada, Israel, USA, UK, Australia, and many other countries around the world. I use SDL Trados Studio 2011 - the market-leading program for translation memory, terminology management and software localization.
My work can be certified with an ATIO stamp, which in many cases can replace certifying a translation by a Canadian Notary Public.
I also provide interpretation services (English to Hebrew, Hebrew to English) in the following areas in Southern Ontario, Canada: GTA (Greater Toronto Area), London, Hamilton and Kitchener-Waterloo.
