"As a forensic psychiatric hospital under
the auspices of the New York State Office of Mental Health, LE Translation
Services has demonstrated their competency by providing interpreters
that are knowledgeable about mental health issues, sensitive to
our patient population, and thoroughly immersed in what they do
and how they do it. In a 'nutshell' they do a superior job.
Mid-Hudson Forensic Psychiatric Center provides
services for a diverse population. Often these patients do not have
the ability to understand or speak the English language. LE Translation
Services has provided us with skilled interpreters who have translated
difficult legal terminology for the patients, and provided our clinical
staff with critical information in order that we can clearly understand
the diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
The unique skill that the interpreters have is
their ability to relate to the patients and make them feel comfortable
and secure in a new environment. Our patients have come from New
York City, Asia, Russia, Latin America, and the Caribbean Islands.
Many of the patients speak various dialects, i.e., Cantonese, Vietnamese,
Mandarin, Thai, Tagalog, Ukrainian, Korean, Japanese,
Spanish, and many other languages that I'm sure I'm leaving out.
But the point I am making is that LE Translation Services has met
our requests and expectations often on a short notice, regardless
of how difficult or unique the language many be--a challenge that
is not often met by other language services. In addition, the agency
has provided our patients with sign language services and have translated
many of our clinical documents into a language specific to an individual
LE Translations has been a true asset for our hospital.
The costs are fair and reasonable, and benefits are truly exceptional.
The agency has respected the privacy and confidentiality of our
patient population and their value to our staff and patients far
exceeded our expectations. I strongly recommend them to any agency
or human service entity who requires quality and excellent interpreting

"Dear Ludmila: We received the attached letter
from our client, Cade, Saunders & Persing and thought you would
like to have a copy. It is indeed a rare event when a client, an
attorney is so impressed by one of our professional's performance
that time is taken to address a letter of thanks and commendation.
I cannot adequately thank you for your obviously impressive skills
and I assure you, when we get a letter like Mr. Persing's, we too
commend you with our highest respects."

It is a privilege
to have the opportunity to write a letter or recommendation for
Ms. Ludmila Lantsuta-Davis. She held the position of Language Agent
for the Shooting competition at the Wolf Creek Venue for the Atlanta
Commitee for the Olympic Games. She was an outstanding member of
the Language Services Department. She did an excellent job providing
linguistic support in Polish and Russian for the above mentioned
sport through her participation in press conferences, staging and
preparation for finals and ceremonies, and many other situations
which called for her interpreting skills. In fact, Ms. Lantsuta-Davis
proved herself to be a superb, professional interpreter in high
profile situations. For instance, she was the official interpreter
at a press conference for the first gold medalist of the 1996 Olympics.
I was especially impressed with her ability to
manage multiple tasks, not only the many responsibilities that being
a Language Agent imposes, but the maintenance of her professional
and personal commitments as well. Her dedication was proven by the
long hours that she put in to ensure the success of Atlanta's hosting
of the Summer Olympic Games. Moreover, the professional way in which
she handled the many and diverse international situations that confronted
her was commendable. As her manager at the time, many coaches and
athletes of teams with whom she was working closely approached me
to express their gratitude and appreciation for the professional
work Ms. Lantsuta-Davis provided for them.
I was pleased with the way Ms. Lantsuta-Daivs quickly
established herself as a vital member of the Language Services team
with whom she interacted so critically. I wish her all the best
in her future endeavors and would welcome the chance to collaborate
with her again. I would enjoy the opportunity to speak on behalf
of Ms. Ludmila Lantsuta-Davis should she ever need my reference.

"We wish to advise that it has been a pleasure
working with the L.E. Translation Services, owned by Ludmila Lantsuta
Davis since 1996. During this time, the Agency has consistently
provided reliable and highly professional services, at times, with
very short notice. Ms. Davis, and her staff have been used to translate
for our Forensic and Civil patients where appropriate for Clinical
Evaluations, Team Meetings, Family Meetings and other activities
as indicated. As you know, this can be an extremely challenging
and difficult task, requiring the services of highly qualified professional
interpreters. Staff here has been very pleased with L.E. Translation
Services in meeting all our demands for a translation service. Interpreters
sent from this agency have been sensitive with a good understanding
of subject matter and medical terminology which are very important
in these assignments. It is my understanding that all the interpreters
are certified interpreters for the New York State Unified Court
System and are native speakers of the required foreign language.
In summary, business with L.E. Translation Services has been cost
effective as well as rewarding in quality, reliability and availability.

to Ukraine's democracy and her citizen's right to a free and fair
election has not gone unnoticed...Without your personal contribution
to monitor the election process, the vote may not have been as transparent
