Yesterday, I was very pleased to receive the following testimonial:

Clare worked on a selection of Spanish materials for me – she was quick, efficient, accurate and responsive, completing the work to a high standard within a tight timeframe. Her queries were thoughtful and sensible, and we will be placing further work with her in the future. L.M., Senior Project Coordinator, [major publisher].
