Feedback, Clients & Experience

"Hi James, received and reviewed, nice job."



"James has completed numerous hours of face-to-face interpretation and translations, with over 15 assignments being undertaken, some under very difficult circumstances. He is always punctual and professional and always meets the clients’ expectations. His translation work is excellent and he is also keen to learn in order to gain further experience in this field."

"Mr. Baugh is a current contractor of ours and his work covers both private and public center entities. He is a skilled and capable interpreter with strong customer service skills."

"Hi James,

Unfortunately we are not allowed to give references. But if we could you know they would be excellent!"
