Brendan T., Project Manager

Hi Thorsten,

I hope all is well. I’ve attached some review feedback for your work on Batch 01. Overall, feedback was very good.

Frank H., Managing Director

Hi everyone!

Because we all worked together so successfully last year on the translations for Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed 3, I would like to use the same team again this year.

Matthias Hues, Actor

I have lived in the U.S. for 28 years now. Seldom have I met someone with such a genuine talent for language as Thorsten. English could be his first language. Page for page, the wonderful fitness book that he translated is just as good as the English original, if not better! Greetings from Hollywood!

Lizzy U., Project Manager

Thanks a lot for a great job (as usual 😉 )!
