Dear Cristina,
It's probably not a surprise to you, but I thought maybe you would like to know that your recent translation has come back to us from the client without a single correction.

As usual, the quality of your translation was perfect! Thank you very much.

Seriousness, punctuality, and the closeness with which she treats her clients are the qualities that best define the work of Cristina. Her vast terminological understanding and mastery of the language make her an excellent professional.

If you're looking for a linguist with a sound science background, no doubt my colleague Cristina Estrada Velo is an excellent choice. A degree in science, 2 diplomas in translation by the gold standard institute in the field, a great deal of experience, a love for languages and for properly done work, along with a flair for writing are just what you need. Indeed, when it comes to dental translations, I could hardly think of anybody more reliable.

Diana Gibson

I have known Cristina Estrada for many years and can vouch for her high professionalism in the field of medical and dental translation from English and German into Spanish. We have worked in common on a number of projects and her Spanish translations were always of a very high quality.

Carlos Gancedo

We have always appreciated the reliable and highly professional cooperation with Cristina Estrada. Prompt feedback, timely deliveries and, above all, the high quality translation and editing of texts where it is clear that Cristina "thinks along with you" are invaluable to us.
