Customer Testimonials

I needed my wife's bank documents to be translated from Spanish (Spain) to English in order to process the petition for her. I did not know where to go or where to call. I called to more than 20 offices from Silver Spring to Arlington, VA. After I lost hope, I came across Dictyon Language Service and dialed the number. I simply told them the approximate word counts on 2 pages and immediately got a quote which was totally reasonable; I did NOT ask for any discount since I already knew the price of others:) Mr. Regas and the staff member were very friendly people.

Within 24 hrs, they prepared the translation without advance payment. The work was totally more than I expected; neat and to the point! I really have to say that Dictyon Language Service has already accommodated friendly and very professional people! I Highly recommend this business.
