‘We began working with Laura Fontaine de Ghélin in the summer of 2014 and she soon gained our loyalty.

 

We are delighted with the service she provides, which we can summarise in three words: quality, flexibility and availability. Laura always delivers excellent translations by the agreed deadline and communicates effectively, which saves us valuable time. We also really appreciate the fact that she reads the source text with a critical eye.

We are so happy to have found her and, for all these reasons, she is currently an Agoria approved supplier for translations into French.’

Bhobo brush, headquartered in Izegem (Belgium), is Europe’s largest manufacturer of feather dusters and bottle brushes.

They are particularly well-known for their cobweb dusters, radiator brushes and gutter brushes.

Bhobo brush also makes a wide range of rubber brushes and water-fed telescopic poles.

Every year, Bhobo brush produces more than 1 million brushes which are exported to over 15 countries.

“I met Laura, the owner of Fontaine de Mots, at a training course in early 2017.

 

We had just launched a new range of brushes, so the Dutch text needed to be translated into French and English for the new packaging.

Initially, I did the translations myself and asked Laura to check them.

However, it very quickly became apparent that my translations contained so many errors that I had wasted several hours doing them.
In future, I will save myself time by sending the Dutch texts direct to Fontaine de Mots.

They also noticed that the English slogan provided by our advertising agency, although grammatically correct, had a very negative connotation in the UK.
Luckily, Fontaine de Mots was able to correct it in time.

What’s more, to help us meet our deadlines, the translation was delivered in InDesign, in other words directly in the files in which we had created our packaging.

We received a great deal of extra service free of charge, so we were really delighted with our first collaboration. It was a huge success!”

“We asked Fontaine de Mots to translate the help pages of our software.

 

We sent them the Word documents but they immediately suggested they translate the text directly in HTML, which saved us a huge amount of time. The hyperlinks in the translations work perfectly.

When we requested a quote, Fontaine de Mots’ explanation of how they worked immediately reassured us that we were dealing with professionals. I was also pleasantly surprised by their professional approach, the quality of the work, their clear pricing and the timely delivery of the translations.

I would not think twice about sending them more work in the future and will definitely recommend them to others in my professional network.”

“I have enjoyed working with Laura since late 2016.

 

The whole positive experience starts with her quotes, which are clear, comprehensive and arrive very quickly.

Laura always meets the agreed deadline, which is very important to me. Even if the deadline is very tight, she will do her utmost to meet it. Flexibility like this is worth its weight in gold.

In addition, because the texts are edited by a second person and given a final check, the quality of the translations we receive is always exceptional.

A final plus: Laura is always approachable and enthusiastic, just the type of person you want to work with on a regular basis!”
