Around 22 years experience before I open my own agency, VIP Language. I moved from California, where I lived for 25 years, to a beach resort community located in Costa Rica. Here the need for translation in many languages is great. Americans, Canadians, Italians, German and French are the prevalent languages spoken here by thousands of residents who came to live by the beach. My Agency is the only of its type here. I prefer to use the profesionals at Proz than any other form of translator. They are great and very reliable.
