It has been a joy to work with Sarah. Her dedication, her expertize and her attention to detail is second to none. I have found her sincerity and friendliness inspiring. 

Personally it has been an absolute pleasure working with Sarah and Gabriel. I have found their work to be of excellent quality and very professional. We commissioned Portia Communications to design new material for us recently and we are so happy with our choice.

Gabriel’s gift of creativity was obvious from day one. He is artistic, perceptive and was approachable at all times.

It is with great sincerity and gratefulness that I write this testimony. I highly recommend Portia Communications.

Elizabeth MacDonald recently completed the English translation of an article of mine, demonstrating expertise and professionalism in meeting her deadline. Both versions were published in Philomusica On-Line No. 10 (2011) 1. The text was difficult, requiring technical competence in medieval musicology and an in-depth knowledge of specialized terminology. I take the opportunity to thank her for the care and accuracy she brought to bear on such a challenging article. Congratulations! I fully intend to continue this collaboration.

La dott.ssa Elizabeth MacDonald ha svolto con grande competenza e puntualità il lavoro di traduzione di un mio saggio recentemente pubblicato in veste bilingue su Philomusica on line n. 10 (2011) 1, che richiedeva grande attenzione per la corretta comprensione degli  argomenti di musicologia medievista e la resa della terminologia specialistica. La ringrazio della cura e della precisione con cui ha tradotto un testo tanto difficile, e Le faccio i miei complimenti. Mi auguro di poter continuare questa preziosa collaborazione.

Recentemente Elizabeth MacDonald ha fatto per me un lavoro di traduzione della nuova pagina web che sto elaborando. Sono rimasta gradevolmente stupita per l’eleganza del suo stile, novità per me sconosciuta in una lingua come l’inglese, e per come i miei testi, non sempre facili e spesso delicati nel loro senso profondo, sono stati colti con maestria e tradotti con precisione. Inoltre, e non meno importante,  la Sig.ra MacDonald consegna il lavoro nei tempi annunciati . Insomma, a mio parere, una traduttrice da consigliare sotto tutti i punti di vista!

Elizabeth MacDonald recently completed the English translation of my new website. I was pleasantly surprised at the elegance of her style: I didn’t think that the delicacy, profundity and obliqueness of my source text could be translated so accurately into a language as synthetic as English without losing anything! Added to this, but no less importantly, she keeps to the time frame agreed. On all fronts then, I heartily recommend Elizabeth MacDonald as a translator.
