About Richard McDorman

I was born and raised in rural West Virginia. I went to college in Virginia, and later to graduate school in Chicago and Miami, where I settled down in the late 1990s. Afterwards, I studied translation at New York University and applied linguistics at Penn State. I am a linguist and essayist. I love language, linguistics, and writing about them. I am an ATA certified translator (Spanish to English). My academic and research interests include historical linguistics, theoretical phonology, English dialectology (especially African-American English), Indo-European studies, neuroscience, anthropology, and the humanities (among others).


Although I usually do not have the availability to take on extremely large jobs, I completely dedicate myself to each and every document that I accept for translation and editing. I am prepared to conduct extensive background research when necessary and make sure that I get the job right the first time, every time. I pay meticulous attention to detail, including meeting each client’s specific formatting and other requirements.

To contact me for a translation or editing job or to receive a free quote, please e-mail me at [email protected] and I will respond to you as quickly as possible (always within one business day).

Latin Diploma Translations

As a highly experienced ATA-certified translator, I have translated hundreds of college and university diplomas and certificates from Latin into English. I provide fast and accurate translations of Latin diplomas for members of the public, organizations and institutions, and translation agencies.

If you need a Latin diploma translated into English, please feel free to contact me for a free quote. For fastest service, please include the name of the college or university (or include a scanned copy of the certificate or diploma) in your email message.
