I really appreciate your speed and the attention you have put into highlighting and tackling issues you found. Alex explained technical issues in our source files which would cause software problems.

L&D Manager (Japanese electronics manufacturer)

I wanted to say thanks to Robertson Languages for good classes of Portuguese I had. They are helping me a lot especially now when I am in Brazil.

Project Engineer (Oil & gas exploration company)

Anna did a really good job. Her English was of course terrific and her ability to adapt to the changing needs of the groups was also very good – she was good at ‘reading the mood’ of the group and responding accordingly. I would have no hesitation in recommending her as an interpreter in any demanding situation. And as always, she was very well briefed by you and was able to hit the ground running and know what was expected of her.
