TESTIMONIALS

Wir sind mit Fems Übersetzungen sehr zufrieden, weil sie kreativ ist, die Zielgruppe im Blick hat und mitdenkt. Bei Korrekturen arbeitet sie gewissenhaft und zuverlässig. Dazu ist die Zusammenarbeit mit ihr noch super unkompliziert und sehr angenehm. Sie hat unter anderem Texte aus den Bereichen Marketing, PR und Recht bearbeitet. Außerdem hat sie auch ihr SEO-Wissen für die Arbeit mit SEO-Texten einsetzen können. Wir können Fem nur empfehlen!

I have been working with Fem for a couple of years. She handles the difficult projects I usually hand over to her in a precise and responsibile way. Punctual and thorough, she is not only a good editor but is also good at communicating with people (in my case authors, editors and publisher). Her friendliness and precision makes it a pleasure to work with her. I am glad I can count on her help!
Elisa Perotti
Editor Languages & Linguistics Brill
I have been working with Fem for a couple of years now. She supports us with localization of our UX/UI and marketing copy from English to Dutch. Fem is super reliable and constantly delivers on time, but what I value most is her eagle eye. She spots ambiguity, little mistakes or things that lack clarity usually before everyone else and thus contributes to better content, not only for Dutch, but for all our locales.

Localization Manager Jimdo
De eerste tien woorden over Fem: accuraat, vakkundig, snel, ondernemend, betrouwbaar, efficiënt, nauwkeurig, behulpzaam, humoristisch, kritisch. Fem is een taalvirtuoos maar houdt altijd de doelgroep scherp in het oog. Voor ieder die teksten of social media als drempels ervaart, plaveit zij de weg. Daarbij is samenwerken met Fem is bijzonder plezierig.
