"Eva has done a lot of different types of work for us, including UX, competitor analysis, localization, german copy review, and helped us in more ways than we ever imagined at the start of the project. She is diligent, cares a lot about the quality of her work, and she never missed a deadline. She is also really funny and made us laugh many times :) We had a wonderful time working with Eva, and highly recommend her."

"We’ve been working with Eva to localise our brand voice in Germany. She’s fantastic at responding to briefs, localising copy for the German audience, and understanding our brand tone. She’s fast and efficient, with great attention to detail. I highly recommend Eva for translation and localisation work!"

Noémie Adler,
Marketing Manager Europe

"At Paperform (SaaS company, form-builder software) we worked with Eva on the English-to-German localisation of our main product page. TL;DR — Eva did an amazing job at that! 🙌
What was especially great is Eva's attention to detail. Our English landing page says "no CC required" — Eva brought up the issue that in Germany people aren't really using credit cards, and thus such a statement might be confusing for them 🤔The explanation made perfect sense, and so Eva thoughtfully translated that sentence as "no payment information required", or as it sounds in German "keine Zahlungsinformationen benötigt".
Quality of the translation: 10/10
Communication skills: 10/10
SaaS business acumen: 10/10
Overall: 10/10
Thank you, Eva!"

Vlad Shvets,
Growth Manager
