I have been using Ulatus services regularly for some time now and their quality of work is really good. The style and accuracy with which they translated my various documents was exactly what I expected it to be. I am really impressed with their team who worked closely with me to translate our vision into reality.Desiree Lui, Abbott Informatics Asia Pacific Ltd.
When we approached Ulatus, we initially asked for literal translation. But when the authors reviewed the translation style, they wanted the text to be more fluent. So right in the middle of the project, Ulatus changed the style from literal to paraphrasing. We are so thankful to Ulatus for accommodating this change.Dr. Makoto Inoue, University Of Tokyo Press
We have been thrilled with Ulatus' accuracy, flexibility and professionalism. Having one company that can do the translation and the desktop publishing all in-house was a tremendous advantage. We are already planning out our next projects with Ulatus. Click here to buy the book.Dr Carolyn Mein, Health and Nutrition Expert
