Ketubah Translation Service

The Ketubah, which is an ancient Aramaic term for wedding contract, is a financial and legal document which specifies the marital obligations of the groom to the bride. These obligations include the extent of the financial settlement owed to the wife in the event of divorce or death of the husband. The writing of the Ketubah is typically officiated by a Rabbi and is signed by two witnesses. In ancient times, the Ketubah was mostly written in Aramaic with very specific wording. The only variations in the wording of the Ketubah were the sums of money committed by the groom. Furthermore, in ancient times (as well in modern Orthodox Judaism), the Ketubah was a unilateral contract which was written on behalf of the groom only.

In present times, given the fulfillment of gender equality and with the rising popularity of liberal Jewish movements (like Conservative and Reform Judaism), the Ketubah has morphed into a document that details the marriage vows of both the bride and groom. Unlike in ancient times, finances are not the focus of the modern-day Ketubah. Rather the romantic and idealistic aspects of the future marriage are detailed. Indeed, many couples that approach the day of matrimony put a lot of thought and effort into the writing of the Ketubah.

We have translated hundreds of Ketubot (the plural form of Ketubah in Hebrew) both from Hebrew to English and from English to Hebrew. The translated Ketubah can be read aloud at the wedding ceremony, laid out by a calligrapher and framed, or just kept by the married couple for posterity.

This company is awesome! I was looking for a translation of a three page complex business proposal and I uploaded to their website for a quote. Which I got on the spot. I was surprised at how reasonable it was and was a little nervous that the job wouldn't be perfect because the price seemed so good. However, I paid online (very easy process) and the next morning I had the translated proposal in my inbox! I can't personally tell you how good the translation was because I don't really speak the language :) but my business partner tells me it was amazing! And the investors I gave it to were very impressed as well :). I wholeheartedly recommend this company and their professional services.

The complete experience with GTS translation was amazing. They provided a quote immediately which helped me to decide. The turn around time for translation was super fast and it was crucial for submission of an application. This will be my preferred option for Certified Translations going forward.

Loved the service and turnaround time with this company. They quickly got to know our needs (specifically for a back translation and validated translation for a research project with two languages), and though we inundated them with several additional requests through the project, all was handled professionally and with ease. Highly recommend.
