Testimonials

Here are some comments made by clients...

"I really canít recommend Alison highly enough, not only does she seem to know all the answers off the top of her head, on the rare occasions she doesnít she admits it and then comes back to me with an informed answer in a surprisingly short space of time. In all honestly Iím not sure I would be able to cope with the bureaucracy that is France without Alison."


"I have no hesitation in recommending Alison McDonagh - she is both professional and supportive in her approach, effectively combining her expertise in the French language with her excellent interpersonal skills"


"I needed a translation of some documents from English to French. Alison did a through and precise translation. I even had it checked by a French colleague just to be sure and he said it was very well done. I was also pleased and grateful for how quickly it was sent back to me."


"In the role of interpreter she has arranged and accompanied us to an appointment with a solicitor and visits to the Mairie and bank. In relation to the creation and running of our micro-entreprise she has translated, explained and helped us to complete various official forms and has made any subsequent telephone calls on our behalf"."


"We are extremely pleased with the friendly, efficient assistance that Alison has given and are very happy to recommend her services."


"We felt we had to write to thank you for the magnificent work you did enabling our house purchase in France. We had, in the past, casually considered the possibility of buying a property abroad. The trouble being that neither of us are proficient in foreign languages and our natural caution meant that we really thought that we would not end up doing so.
After our meeting, however, it suddenly became a reality - here was someone who was not only fluent in French, but had also lived there for long enough to understand the ramifications of the whole process, something that is worth it's weight in gold! Your confidence and experience gave us the opportunity that we wouldn't have taken, left to our own devices.
Your efficiency in dealing with the Notaire, translating documents, arranging appointments and accompanying us to open bank accounts, set up payments for utilities, obtaining meter readings etc. was superb! Not forgetting the introduction to our builder, who is doing such a good job for us."


"Thanks for all your help. We appreciated your French lessons which were tailor-made for our needs. You managed to help both of us; one with limited French and the other at a more advanced level. We both feel more confident to continue our French when we move down to our new home in the Dordogne"
