Tuesday’s Tip: How do you actually find a genealogical translator?

In the last two weeks, we’ve talked about when you might need to hire a translator and how to choose the appropriate translator. But you likely still have one question – how do I actually find a genealogical translator to interview?

Lucky for you, the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) offers a list of genealogists who offer translation services. To access their list, go to www.apgen.org. On the left side of the page, click on “Translator” under “Find A Specialist.”


Unfortunately, right now the APG directory does not permit you to sort by language. You will have to go to each individual profile to see what languages that person translates… It is a planned update for the site.

Have questions? Comments? Please post.
