 "I've worked with Uta on various projects where she translated into German for us. I highly recommend Uta! She is a very reliable translator, who always delivers good-quality work on time. If there are issues, she will certainly let you know before the deadline and consult with you to find the best solution. It's a pleasure working with Uta and I will be happy to work with her on many more occasions!" Willemijn Goos, Data Concept Technology, The Netherlands

"I've contacted Uta early this year for the first time and my feeling is that I was lucky that she accepted to work with me. Uta is extremely professional, a very accurate translator, always focused in providing a high quality work. She's easy to communicate with, as we get prompt and direct replies to emails. I hope we can have further cooperation opportunities as she will be my "number one choice" in her language pairs." Tina Duarte, Boreal Translations, Portugal

"I have worked with Uta in several projects now and it has always been a pleasure. She is extremely professional and top notch in her discipline. I'd recommend her for any translation to German need you may have, you won't be disappointed and she will definitely exceed your expectations." Luz Torres, Foreign Translations, USA
