I attended your presentation “Mental Health Interpreting: Unique Challenges and Practical Solutions” at the recent ATA conference. Thank you for presenting the examples in an interesting and insightful way.
Thank you very much, Arianna. It was very interesting and your presentation was excellent.
Thank you Arianna, your presentation was a major contribution to our profession. I wish there were more workshops on Mental Health Interpreting.

It has been a pleasure working with you on the translation of the Be Active Kids newsletters. We knew we wanted to better reach the Spanish-speaking families of children in the state using our program, and you were the resource that enabled us to make this happen. I greatly appreciate your attention to detail, your quick response time, and your determination to deliver a high-quality document. You were very easy to work with and professional.
I especially appreciate your insight into how words translate culturally from English to Spanish. Your sensitivity in making sure that concepts and words in our newsletters translate culturally is a huge help […] Instead of simply translating the words on the page, you are very aware of how they will be communicated culturally to Spanish-speaking parents and families.
Thanks again for all of your help! I will definitely recommend you services to the people I know!

I reviewed the publication [during the presentation] and again today. I think it is a super translation from English to Spanish. Not only the content was superb, but the punctuation marks, which are very essential, were placed on the right syllables. Many people lack that ability.
Also, the translation from feet to the metric system was very desirable as this system is used by most Spanish speaking people.
I enjoy helping people break the language barrier, and I always like to see quality material such as this, especially when it performs such and important mission. ¡Felicitaciones!
