Dr. Patricia Reagan

Certified Spanish Interpreter, Translator & Spanish Language Services

 

Dr. Patricia Reagan has been a freelance interpreter and translator in Virginia since 2004. She has provided interpreting and translation services in legal, medical, social service and community settings for individuals, companies, law-firms, non-profit organizations, and federal agencies among others.  Dr. Reagan completed the 40 hour Community Interpreting Course offered by the International Rescue Committee in Charlottesville, VA in 2004 where she lived until recently relocating to the Richmond area. In August of 2012, Dr. Reagan completed a 28-hour course, “Healing Voices: Interpreting for Survivors of Torture, War Trauma & Sexual Violence,” in Columbia MD.

Dr. Reagan earned her PhD in Spanish from the University of Virginia in 2008. She has studied abroad extensively in Spain and Argentina and speaks Spanish at home with her fiancé who is from Mexico. She has traveled to 12 countries where Spanish is spoken; therefore, she masters various dialects and regional idiosyncrasies allowing her to specifically address her client’s needs.

Since 2002, Dr. Reagan has taught Spanish language, literature, and culture at the university level. Her research focuses on contemporary Latin American fiction and Latinos in the United States. Her book, The Postmodern Storyteller focusing on the fiction of José Donoso, Gabriel García Márquez and Mario Vargas Llosa was published in July, 2012. She has also written various articles and encyclopedia entries extensively on bachata music of the Dominican Republic, Latino folklore and the fiction of Julio Cortázar and Jorge Luís Borges.

Testimonials

“Dr. Reagan’s expert, efficient service helped our family tremendously as we navigated new terrain of Hague Apostilles, certified translations, etc. Within a very short period of time, Dr. Reagan translated, certified, and collected the necessary Apostille for multiple documents. She communicated with us every step of the way and really went the extra mile to provide great service and quick turnaround! Highly recommend Richmond Translator services!!”

-Courtney Dodson, Danville, VA (Certified translations of all Requirements for Non Lucrative Family Visas: State Police Criminal Background Reports, Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificate, Health Insurance, Medical Certificates, May 2014)

 

What was initially just a quick birth certificate translation evolved into quite an odyssey, but Dr. Reagan quickly and ably helped me navigate the entire translation process, obtaining the Apostille of the Hague from the Secretary of the Commonwealth and getting the documents to Spain faster than I could have imagined. Her excellent, informative communication also allowed me to keep tabs on the time-sensitive process and remain calm and confident that everything was going smoothly.

- Justin P. (Certified translation of birth certificate and Apostille sent to Spain, 2013)

 

Ms. Reagan’s services were more than appreciated by our parents and staff.  She has a terrific grasp of the language! She is very professional and appeared to place the parents at ease during an otherwise overwhelming process.  We are very fortunate she was available to help us effectively service our growing population of hispanic students.

- Shawna R. Newbill, MSW, C-SSWS, Hanover County School Social Worker (In-person intrepretation at IEP meeting, 2012)

 

Excellent Curriculum Developer for Spanish! Very knowledgeable, professional and organized.

Over half of my business currently comes from fixing BAD translations: This sign at the Science Museum of Virginia (with a $5 million dollar revenue in 2012) is mistranslated! It says No Food or BABY beyond this point! You need a professional!
