NAME: Mina Kuttner


RESIDENCE: 15 Scott Dr., Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, L4C 6V5

CITIZENSHIP: I am a Canadian citizen, and was an Israeli citizen for 25 years.

PLACE OF BIRTH: Born in Düsseldorf, Germany, to parents of German citizenship.

EXPERIENCE: The experience as a freelance translator started in 1999.

LANGUAGES: I am in command of three languages: Hebrew (Biblical, Talmudic, Modern) and, of course, English. German is my first acquired language because it was my parents' native language,


1. I am a Legal Historian (specialized in the common-law legal system). The title Ph.D. was granted by the Union Institute and University, Cincinnati, USA, and I obtained the 2003 Marvin B. Sussman Award. This Award honored a doctoral dissertation judged to be outstanding in its original and overall presentation.

2) The M.A. Degree (Cum Laude) in Jewish history and Middle Eastern Studies was granted by Tel-Aviv University (language required courses: Biblical and Talmudic Aramaic German, English, and Arabic).

 3) I was awarded a B. A. from the departments of Middle Eastern Studies and Jewish History (language required courses: English, German, Arabic, and Biblical and Talmudic Aramaic).

4). I am a qualified teacher (graduated from Levinski Teaching College, Tel-Aviv, Israel), and I prepared students for matriculation exams in Hebrew grammar.

BELOW  IS A SHORT SUMMARY OF THE FIELDS OF MY TRANSLATION, serving the following companies:, which is known now as translated. com; B.R. Translation Ltd.; Zi Corporation; the law firm Beard Winter LLP. And private clients.
