Customer testimonials

“SDL SLATE was fast and brilliant – it was instant, professional, and the output looked exactly like the original. No one that received the document had negative feedback on the quality of content. I appreciate that I can get my document professionally translated right away with no hidden costs, no wait time for a project quote, and no extra work for me. SDL SLATE is foolproof.”
