Testimonials

 

We are well respected by our clients.

 

"When translating the history of a place and its peoples, it is of utmost importance that the translation be both accurate and sensitive to the cultures, actors and issues being described. (…) No matter the subject given to Gwendolyn and Natasha, they consistently delivered well-researched translations that both honoured the original meaning and were sensitive to the subjects being described." 

Vanessa Copeland, Project Editor, Reflections: History of Québec and Canada, TC Media Livres

 

"La qualité de leur travail, le respect de nos échéanciers ainsi que leur souci d’exactitude dans les textes d’exposition nous incitent fortement à recommander leurs services de traduction."

Christine Brisson, Head – Collections and Exhibitions, Château Ramezay – Historic Site and Museum of Montreal

 

"Les communications sont faciles et rapides avec les deux traductrices. Nous sommes très satisfaits de leur efficacité, de leur disponibilité et de la qualité du travail effectué."

Amélie Renouf, Head – Programs and Activities, Heritage Montreal

 

"Elles ont traduit les chansons pour mon album Timbuktu to Bombay, tout en restant fidèle à l’esprit de mon album en français. J’ai eu plusieurs rencontres avec elles pour échanger sur les meilleures options de traduction et pour travailler le rythme des phrases, étant donné que je suis percussionniste. L’album a récolté deux prix aux États-Unis. Je leur dois évidemment une grande partie de ces récompenses."

Kattam Laraki-Côté, Percussion artist, songwriter and children’s entertainer
