“It’s not easy to find someone who manages to understand the things we write and translate them in a suitable way. All in all, in many years of experience, you’re perhaps the first person who we’ve really been satisfied with.”

“I hereby certify, without a shadow of a doubt, Ms Whittle’s precise, in-depth and meticulous professionalism, as well as her refined capacity to understand texts of a pedagogical, sociological and philosophical nature, and her ability to render them in flowing translations that can be used both by academics and the wider public. (Thanks to the high level of linguistic rigour and flexible interpretation shown by Ms Whittle we have been able to present her translations of essays and books […] in international academic contexts.)”
