  • Spyware cleanups, Rogue removals, Viruses, Trojans, Rootkits, Malware
    These cleanups are frequently cheaper as a bench repair; call with a description for a flat-rate quote. Write down the names of popups or the text from error messages or any new programs that have appeared on the PC, that you did not install.
  • Slow Computer?
    Nearly any computer can have better speed. We can remove excess autostarting software, including the advertising from the manufacturer, or add memory, or switch the hard drive for a SSD or Solid-State Drive, which improves both boot time and program speed, plus improves battery life and shock resistance in notebooks.
  • Data Migration:
    We transfer data, or salvage it, from old computers, and then security-wipe the old drives, or move the drive to an external housing as a backup drive or as a final snapshot of an old system.
  • Web hosting:
    Responsive, mobile-enabled web designs. We’ll design, write, host, and maintain a WordPress site for you, or we’ll design it and teach you how to add your own posts and pages.
    Hosting includes email with spam-filtering at the server, search optimization based on local results, from a Westminster native.
  • Hardware repairs:
    Onsite PC repairs and bench service provided, Windows-based computers only. 20 years experience.
    (We do not fix printers, monitors or laptop screens, or Apple products.)
  • Data Recovery
    Science Translations is an authorized reseller in Westminster Maryland for DriveSavers data recovery services. (Ask for a discount coupon code.) We can determine if a non-responsive drive can simply be copied off-line, or if it has to go to DriveSavers for expert data recovery.
  • Custom Computer Design:
    New computers built-to-order or reconfigured as needed. Multi-monitor setups are routine. Backup planning should always be considered before starting to use a new system.
  • Security analysis:
    Check computers for up-to-date security software, missing patches from Windows, Adobe, and other malware targets. Backup planning is part of security, along with password management.
  • Newsletter publishing:
    Email newsletters, paper newsletters, and technical editing from a graduate of the Masters of Science program at Towson University in Professional Writing, with 20 years of experience as an editor and author.

The company name comes from the technical writing side of the business. We translate technobabble into plain English, and jargon into practical communication.

We make house calls, and sometimes, Google takes pictures:
The Google StreetView truck drove by, photographing Rolling Road, just as we were finishing a house call.
