Chuukese Translation Services
My name is Jill Short. When I was a young girl, my parents and I went to live in the Chuuk Islands as missionaries. My life has never been the same.
I have now been speaking, translating and interpreting the Chuukese language for over forty years. I offer both on-site and remote services, thus enabling easy access anywhere in the world.
I offer a full range of interpretation and translation services:
Court Interpretation- Telephonic, Zoom/VMR and In-Person/On-Site;
Consecutive and Simultaneous Interpretation
Qualified/Certified Interpreter for Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ICE, Lionbridge, AVAZA (and more);
Document Translation, Proofreading and Editing;
Member of ProZ, Translators Café and other Interpreter Forums;
In addition to the services listed above, I am also available for events/public speaking on language and cultural awareness relating to Chuuk, Micronesia and the Pacific Islands.
CHUUK is in Micronesia, a vast region in the western Pacific Ocean. There are more than 2,000 islands/atolls in Micronesia! On a world map, the Chuuk Islands are almost exactly halfway between Hawaii and the Philippines.
Chuukese is the official language of Chuuk. There are currently 50,000+ Chuukese-speaking people living throughout the world.
