Quotes from several references:

"Csilla Takács worked at Stikeman, Elliott, Barristers and Solicitors (headquartered in Toronto), Budapest, from November 1996 to April 1998 as Translator. Csilla was a key element of our translation department. She is proactive in her work and very consistent and reliable worker, often dealing with matters of a sensitive and confidential nature in a mature and discreet fashion. I would have no hesitation in recommending Csilla for future employment as, under any circumstances, she can be relied upon to act professionally." (Alain Massicotte, Managing Principal, Central and Eastern Europe)

"Takács Csilla 1991-1995 között állt a Baker & McKenzie Ügyvédi Iroda alkalmazásában. Az évek során kialakult bizalomra és az általa elsajátított magas szintű nyelvtudásra építve 1998-tól 2007-ig adtunk Csillának fordítási megbízásokat. A bizalmas jellegű anyagokat diszkréten kezelte, a sürgős anyagokat színvonalasan és a határidőknek megfelelően készítette el. Munkáját mindig következetesen, alaposan és hozzáértéssel végezte. Legtöbbször szerződéseket, közigazgatási határozatokat és feljegyzéseket fordított. Jogi tanulmányait hasznosítva nem jelent számára problémát a jogi terminológia precíz alkalmazása, az adott ügylet és a jogi helyzet értelmezése. Ajánlom Csilla fordításait mindenkinek, akinek igényes, magas színvonalú fordításokra van szüksége." (Takács P. Pál, Partner)

"Az Országos Fordító és Fordításhitelesítő Iroda Zrt. Közületi Fordítási Osztálya 1998-tól 2004-ig adott angol nyelvű fordítási megbízásokat Takács Csillának. Munkáját mindig lelkiismeretesen, alaposan, szakszerűen végezte, a határidőket felelősségteljesen betartotta. Következetes és megbízható munkatársat ismertünk meg benne, akivel valóban hatékonyan lehet együtt dolgozni." (Szappanos Géza, vezérigazgató)

"Csilla provides unique services as a specialist translator for legal English texts because she does not only have a perfect command of English but she has also attended law school and has worked at law firms and with lawyers for many years. She has always delivered translations on time and in best quality." (Dr. Kinga Hetényi, Managing Partner (Budapest) at Schönherr Hetényi Law Firm)

"As Legal Director of Dreher Rt. and Philip Morris Kft., I have worked with Csilla Takács for over six years. It has been a pleasure having her on my team.
Csilla is a professional translator of the highest caliber, who meticulously edits and proofs her work. I've received several compliments from lawyers who rely on documents translated by her. Csilla is an innovative self-starter, who rarely requires supervision. She is punctual, typically exceeds expectations and voluntarily works late hours to meet a deadline. Csilla is a valuable asset to any legal department and I strongly recommend her." (Dr. György Liptovszky, Director Business Development, InterTicket Hungary)
