Stephen Clarke, Quality Manager and QP at Mentholatum:

"My company used Maria before, during and after a Pharmaceutical inspection by two Pharmaceutical Regulators from Belarus. Maria was a huge benefit through the entire process and her commitment to the task was shown by the research that she had put into the Pharmaceutical industry, and also the regulatory expectations within the EU and Belarus as personal learning for herself in the weeks before the inspection. Maria helped us to build a good working relationship with the inspectors, talked through some very complex technical situations and was key to the entire process. I would strongly recommend Maria to anyone who requires translation or interpretation services."


Mark Poutney, Technical and Engineering Manager at Hubbell Scotland:

"Maria worked assisting me during a recent certification audit, her professionalism and approachable style are suited perfectly to a productive working environment. Her preparation for work has also to be commended with industry specific knowledge gathered prior to starting. I will have no hesitation in recommending Maria to anyone with a requirement for a translator / interpreter."
