“We have used Mr. Stevenson’s services for over five years. He has consistently provided us with exceptional translation work in the legal field – often needing to research extensively into financial, insurance, engineering and technical terminology in order to complete jobs to the satisfaction of our clients. Without doubt, he is the “go to” person for our most demanding work and has never once missed a deadline, despite some projects requiring intense effort in short time”. – Owner, Specialist Legal Translation Agency, UK.

“We recently used Vivian’s services for a celebrity interview translation job. We found him to be thorough, swift and efficient, providing us with a solid transcript that was backed up by additional research into the celebrity concerned, to discern their idioms and particular style of speaking. We are delighted with the work, and would certainly use his services again in future.” – Leading Sydney-based Public Relations Agency.
“In 2012 we commissioned Vivian to write several assembly manuals for the company’s critical safety equipment. Our dual objective was to provide our technicians with accessible manuals that could also be archived for our design and quality records. Vivian worked independently off-site and also on-site with our engineers to disassemble each device, photograph components, and discuss technical aspects. His grasp of the equipment’s nature, purpose and assembly process resulted in concisely worded documents, amply supported with pertinent photographs and captions. The manuals fulfilled all our requirements, and we would not hesitate in recommending Vivian’s content creation services”. – Paul, Engineering Manager, Sydney.

“We needed certified translations for an important application process, and I came across Viv’s website, Mine Your Language. Having no idea where or how to start, he made the process seem all too easy! I was sure a few visits to the office were required but correspondence was all done through emails , telephone and the post. Viv was not only professional at all times but also friendly and so keen to help. I would highly recommend him to anyone”. – Mel W., Sydney.
“Thank you for a prompt and complete service. I was very impressed that the translated documents looked like the original except in Spanish. This will no doubt assist the officials to better and more easily understand our application; and that must assist us. [Follow up:] Good news, our residency permits have been approved for [overseas country]. The official at the Consulate said that she had never seen an application processed so quickly, I credit that with the standard of translation provided by you”. – S.K., Sydney.

“This was our first time translating marketing material into any language, and like everyone else we thought translation was a one-way process. However, Viv actively involved us, asking us questions about our message and translating his Spanish version back into English to show us what he was doing. This led us to rethink a much improved English text that read better. It was a pleasure to work with Viv Stevenson from Mine Your Language, and I would recommend his services to those who seek a translation in Spanish they can be confident will impress their Spanish-speaking readers”. – Catherine, Business Development Manager, Sydney. (For translation into Spanish).
In June/July 2014 my agency engaged Viv Stevenson to undertake Spanish-English and English-Spanish translation to enable us to participate in an overseas tender worth a few million dollars. Viv was outstanding. He translated a massive pre-Tender package of documents over a weekend (the only time we could give him) and subsequently translated the actual Tender documents in a time frame that was only slightly less punishing. The translation was done to a pleasingly high standard. I attribute this to his intellectual curiosity and willingness to delve beneath the words to understand our business and what we were trying to convey. I would have no hesitation in turning to Viv again if we need any future Spanish translation. – Kay, International Contracts Manager, Canberra.
