Testimonial

“Just a word of thanks to you for the outstanding Italian interpreter you have sent us to help with our patients. He helped me today with a family from the east coast of Italy. The family was extremely grateful for his outstanding interpretation. They are very savvy consumers, and have used interpreters before with their child’s medical care. It was clear to me that this Affordable Language Services interpreter was excellent as he can do simultaneous interpretation – a very rare skill. This is very valuable as it allows families to hear nearly every word, rather than what often is a boiled down version as the interpreter summarizes the gist of each sentence.”
