Claudia was an incredible asset to the Transforming IWM London team in her time volunteering with us. She approached emotionally- and linguistically- challenging collections of material with enthusiasm and delivered a consistently excellent series of translations. These were presented to curators in a clear, concise style and with linguistic context to explain nuance. Her work will be of immeasurable value to the new Holocaust and Second World War Galleries.
In all aspects Claudia was a superb translator, and we happily endorse her work and know that Claudia would be an excellent translator for any project, modern or historical.

My Grandmother’s recipes go back more than one hundred years and are mainly in original German Hand Written Script. Where as those of my Mother’s are slightly more of the 20th Century and written with Roman Script if somewhat Germanised.
We left Germany in 1939 very fortunately with those early recipes intact, if somewhat weather beaten.
Claudia has made a quite superb job of transcribing the script, much to our great delight. She also pieced together pages which with time had almost disintegrated. It is great to have such an old manuscript legible and useable again.
Thanks so much for the marvelous job you have done of giving me a window into my grandmother’s life … My heartfelt thanks again for your sensitivity in doing this work.
Research led to a series of handwritten letters from 1815 & 1816 from the Court of Wurtemberg, The language was identified as Kurrent. I was introduced to Claudia who agreed to have a look. Claudia provided an excellent and timely service in their transcription and translation; a task made very much more difficult by the extremely hard to read handwriting, scrawl might be a better description, of the authors of the letters.
I was very fortunate to have found you.
Thankyou very much for your time and expertise and I have no hesitation in recommending you.
Claudia provided my family professional and prompt transcription. My family obtained letters written in ancient font which were over a century old. We are so grateful for Claudia’s services. Her transcription brought forth new information about our ancestors!

Thanks again so much for your work here which I greatly appreciate. The translations have opened a new window into understanding who some of our relatives were and the conditions in which they were living. This is a real treasure.
