Looking for a paid translator of Latin/Old English to English
« on: Wednesday 02 September 20 04:43 BST (UK) »
Hi
I have a number of wills written in Latin and Old English that I would like to have translated so I can read them.  Can anyone recommend a translator for me please.   
Thanks

I MIGHT have a candidate for you ... a friend who was a PhD student of Mary Beard. She might be willing to take on the Latin, but I don't think she can do the Old English. Message me, and I;ll see what she says for you.
