Roland produced very good translations of several medical documents. He finished the work in the agreed time frame and made the whole process run smoothly. I would not hesitate to use his services again.

I highly recommend Roland! I needed help with a German translation project, and he was the perfect fit for the job. He was quick to respond and was very thorough and thoughtful.

German Lessons

About six months ago my teenager son decided he wishes to learn German. I used Thumbtack for that, narrowing it down to three tutors. We had a trial lesson with all three and my son chose Roland. What an excellent choice! My son is looking forward to his weekly lessons, and gradually becomes more comfortable she fluent. Being a teenager, he brings not keeping me in the loop to a level of art, but Roland keeps me informed as to their progress. I am beyond satisfied. Dankeschön!
