Testimonials

The Middle East training was very successful. To potentially expand our business, we have already discussed the possibility of working with your trainer in Abu Dhabi. We are much better off for our new understanding and appreciation of the Arab culture.

Our representatives who are assisting on the inspection of these weapons manuals have voted your Dari translations the most comprehensive and first class in presentation. Great job to Zastava and to your team.

I received many thank you remarks and positive comments on the quality of the session for our international sales team. You did an outstanding job in simplifying and organizing a full day’s worth of cultural awareness training into two hours.

Just when I despaired of finding enough skilled translators for our rapidly expanding list of manga titles, along came Sandra DeLay and Translation by Design to save the day. A genie in a bottle couldn’t have fulfilled my wish list any more quickly and brilliantly, and with more courtesy, graciousness, and initiative. I only had to ask, and Translation by Design provided: talented and diligent translators, top-notch service, and fair rates and timely delivery. And the best bonus of all: Sandra herself, a real pro who’s a pleasure to work with.

Translation by Design continues to provide me with superb language solutions, particularly given the rarity of some of the dialects spoken. TBD is uniquely responsive and provides an excellent work product in a timely manner every time.

The Middle East training was excellent and very informative. We learned what we were already doing wrong. Your recommendation to give our new partners in Abu Dhabi the history of our company has been invaluable in building relationships.

I had never worked with translators and was faced with the task of hiring some for my upcoming line of teen novels. After a couple of conversations about the kinds of people and things I needed, Sandra had found me some awesome translators. Now, I can go to Sandra and ask her to search the world over for x, y, z and I know that not only will she deliver x, y, and z, but we'll have a great time doing it. Since the moment I first spoke with Sandra, I was immediately impressed with her kind nature and professional know-how.
