Steven Capsuto

Description

BIOMEDICAL TRANSLATIONS: Extensive experience translating medical charts, adverse effect reports, pharmaceutical fact sheets, clinical trial documentation (protocols, budgets, informed consent forms, etc.), patient education brochures about diseases and conditions, and similar documents.

ENVIRONMENTAL TRANSLATIONS: Environmental-impact studies for proposed construction; scholarly papers on climate change; research institutions’ websites dealing with forestry, oceanography, and zoology; government and corporate disaster preparedness plans.

TRANSLATIONS FROM LADINO (JUDEO-SPANISH): I can work directly from source texts in Rashi script, modern Hebrew typefaces, or the Latin alphabet. If the original is in Solitreo script, there will be an additional cost since I must hire a transcriber before I translate the text.
