Your team’s proficiency in navigating the intricacies of pronoun usage has not only facilitated clear and respectful communication but has also contributed significantly to the overall quality of our client care. In a healthcare setting like ours, where sensitivity to individual identities and preferences is paramount, your attention to detail and understanding of pronoun language nuances have truly set you apart.

…IEC helped my client, San Francisco Headstart, translate all their forms into Chinese, Vietnamese and Spanish. San Francisco Headstart is a nonprofit educational organization that works with immigrant families. IEC was able to translate and create files for us to print. They made a tough job easy.

I am pleased to recommend IEC for future organizations and businesses. Not only can IEC be an asset to a company, but also provide a competitive advantage. Their work is exceptional and I continute to hear high praise from customers as well as colleagues. Magellan does not consider IEC as just a vendor, but a partner in delivering quality communications to an increasingly global marketplace.

Contra Costa Health Services has contracted the interpreter and translation services of International Effectiveness Center (IEC) for the past five years. During this period, Taryk Rouchdy, President of IEC, and his staff, have been consistently there to facilitate our need for telephonic and in person interpreters. The quality of his interpreters has been very professional. When there were any concerns raised by staff, he and his staff have been there to quickly expedite the matter.

Overall, staff at CCHS has been very satisfied with the work and working relationship that we have had with IEC for the past five years. I personally, as manager of language services for the department, have much respect for the professionalism that Taryk and his staff has conducted themselves when providing services for us. I have no hesitation in recommending the services of IEC.
