On 31 Years of Service . . .

". . . about our solid reputation for customer service . . . it’s not a coincidence -- it’s a commitment."

A Message from Helen Ruiz

When we began our interpreting service 31 years ago, we had one objective in mind: to build our company on a strong foundation of customer satisfaction. With that in mind we took extraordinary steps to recruit and contract with only the highest caliber of professional and certified interpreters. But we didn’t stop there.

As our company grew, we also gathered and assembled a stellar team of customer service and information technology specialists to ensure that every aspect of our business was poised to deliver only the highest level of customer service. And the response? The clients came and, more importantly, they’ve stayed with us through decade after decade. Through the years, in addition to implementing ongoing enhancements, we’ve surveyed our growing client base to find out what our customers like best about us and what might need improvement. The feedback we consistently receive from clients is that they greatly appreciate our exemplary customer service.

So, today, when a new client talks about our solid reputation for customer service, I always proudly explain that it’s not a coincidence--it’s a commitment. And on our end, we never take our clients for granted. Let me take this opportunity to thank our interpreters, our dedicated administrative team and our much valued clients for partnering with us since 1985.

We look forward to the next 30 years!!
