Fiona McCormack, MA VetMB MRCVS, Veterinary Adviser, Peden Bloodstock
“It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sarah. From our first contact we knew we were working with a true professional. The task was time-consuming, technical and most importantly incredibly urgent. The language was exceptionally specialised and there were copious lengthy official documents to tackle. Sarah efficiently provided translations and guidance to our company. Throughout the time we worked with Sarah she became an integral part of our team and was available to us day and night for support and guidance. With Sarah’s dedication and absolute commitment to our very demanding timelines we were in-turn able to meet our complex objectives and deadlines. We cannot recommend Clayborn Communications highly enough – we are sure that their commitment to service and delivery in this sector will not be beaten world-wide.”
