"Who are we and why are we pleased to endorse the services of ideas translated?

As independent software developers we were charged with producing a sophisticated multilingual software product (based on Microsoft Word Templates) to portray a consistent and professional Corporate Identity befitting the worldwide operations of our multinational client company.

Achieving this goal of delivering on time and to budget a product that operated natively not only in English but also in Brazilian Portuguese, Spanish, French and German was materially helped by our awareness of the quality of service delivered by ideas translated. Their meticulous attention to detail and timeliness of response with minimal interaction once the source material had been supplied for translation leaves us with no hesitation in recommending them if you have a need for a similar service.

If you would like to hear more about our experiences - or have an interest in acquiring multilingual software to address your own business needs we can be contacted at rdt@compuserve.com"

"Ricardo has been translating documentation for us from English into Brazilian Portuguese for two years. Whatever the subject matter - hardware, software or marketing - he has always provided us with a very sound, competent translation. In particular, he takes great pains to ensure that the terminology he uses is appropriate to the context. Moreover, he is pleasant to deal with and his work has always been submitted on time. We are therefore very happy with Ricardo’s services."

"Ricardo Dannemann helped our company with a major translation project of over 120,000 words. The project covered documentation and context-sensitive help for a software package, a setup guide, sales literature, advertisements, and approximately 50 web pages.

Our project was completed on schedule and costs were competitive.
Ricardo is a true professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring English to Portuguese translation."
