Cristina did an excellent job translating a medical letter that come from my country of origin. We needed the letter to be professionally translated to English because they didn’t accept Spanish letter in the office to get my emergency passport. I needed this to be done ASAP. Cristina replied within minutes, gave me some details about pricing, which was very reasonable, and then went on to translate my letter That same day. Cristina is very responsive and very professional at what she does. I highly recommend Cristina for any translation purposes. Thank you Cristina for your hard work and dedication.

Details: Translation • Spanish • 301 - 400 words • Plain Text File • Medical • At the pro’s location

Their work is outstanding! Their translations and interpretations are always very accurate, and their customer service is second to none! I highly recommend this translation and interpretation firm!
