“He showed a great pride in doing his job well… I would highly recommend him.”
Eric Schwartz and Kath Nygard worked as a team to provide translation [interpretation] for a program that my team carried out in Bogota in June of 2016. They both showed a strong work ethic and dedication to doing their jobs well. I also appreciated greatly the degree of flexibility Eric and Kath both showed during this program. [...] Eric in particular made sure to flag issues with the translation of some of our written materials to help us improve them for the next time we use these materials. He showed a great pride in doing his job well, and had a great disposition and personality. I very much enjoyed working with him, and hope to have a chance to work with him again some day. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for Spanish-English or English-Spanish translation!!

“Eric was outstanding in the work. He effectively interpreted for my presentations …”
[…] We traveled to several cities in Colombia while I was participating in workshops with teachers, with my presentations being about issues in technology and education.
Eric was outstanding in the work. He effectively interpreted for my presentations, both in consecutive interpretation from English to Spanish, and simultaneous interpretation from Spanish to English.
Throughout the activities I felt confident that the communication in both English and Spanish allowed for my full participation in the workshops.
Eric was very flexible in a variety of situations, adjusting to fit the evolving needs for interpretation.
I highly recommend him as an interpreter and would certainly work with him again.
