Customer feedback

We have cooperated with the akzente interpreters for years and have become a well-rehearsed team. You can rely on their service. They always work professionally and unobtrusively, always staying calm even when unforeseen events occur.
Ulrike Halupka, Corporate and Finance Communication
The interpreting team from akzente regularly supports us at board meetings, townhall meetings and road shows. With their linguistic and technical expertise, empathy and creativity, they help us communicate in an appropriate, effective and completely relaxed manner. akzente sprachen makes sure that language barriers disappear and that we are always understood!
Valentina Daiber, Chief Officer for Legal and Corporate Affairs, Member of the Management Board
Telefónica Deutschland Holding AG
Once again we have worked together with the team around G. Ibarburu and, as always, have been impressed by the high level of professionalism, reliability and above all by the professional competence combined with a very good expert knowledge in the field of orthodontics. Not only the participants who listen to the interpreted version keep praising her work, but also the speaker, who knows about the complexity of his lecture and can be sure that his message is conveyed correctly. We are looking forward to continuing our good and trustful cooperation.
Mrs. Stephanie Gärtner
