It is such a pleasure to work with ALE. It's rare to find an agency that is so organized, where the instructions are so clear, which pays dignified rates to translators, which cares so deeply about quality and accuracy, which is responsive to translators' needs, pays on time, and much more. I look forward to referring more business to you and continuing to work together well into the future.
