Words of Recognition
Just wanted to send our thanks for all the assistance. Cethlinn took the documents and her passport and went to the French Embassy where she was granted a visa for her to teach in France this coming year.
She is being hired by the government of France, so it is her first full-time job. Your help and that of your company was just what we needed. None of us had ever applied for a visa, much less an Apostille, so we were relatively clueless. It went absolutely smoothly at the embassy.

This email confirms safe delivery of the facilitator guide and a report that I’m doing a happy dance in my living room seeing this all come together beautifully and ahead of your initial timeline. I’m so delighted and impressed.
We received the translated materials from Deb…thank you for your swift support. Our hope is to have continued engagement in Vietnam, and if all goes well, we will continue to count on your translation services. Thank you!
We appreciate how quick and thorough your team is on these translations! We should have a couple more requests over the next several weeks to close out this campaign.
