Ariadna was a joy to work with and very professional in the job she was hired to do. She showed competence in translating our book from English to Spanish by meeting our expectations. Ariadna is very easy to work with, very pleasant, and makes sound recommendations when she sees something that could be improved. I highly recommend using Ariadna as a translator.
