“If you have high standards and require a quality, accurate translation service, then don’t hesitate to use Alboum. I used them to translate a school brochure into Simplified and Traditional Chinese to meet the needs of the high-end clientele that we need to attract. English to Mandarin is not an easy translation job, so I always have my translations reviewed by my intended audience. Alboum worked with me, valued my reviewer’s suggestions, and did additional research to make sure the correct educational terms were used, that the spirit of the ideas we wanted to communicate was captured, and that nuanced elements of language were properly addressed. I not only have full confidence now that my translations are accurate, but also that they also are appropriately and elegantly worded for my intended audience. Also, they have good prices, excellent customer service, and fast turn-around times. What more could you want? They are awesome!”
