“While Mario was quick to respond, he was not open to criticism and the job was not completed satisfactorily. His translation was literal, not an interpretation. More problematic, the work was full of misspellings and was grammatically incorrect. We got off to a good start -- he translated the first paragraph and I approved it. But, when I received his full translation and attempted to start a conversation about the problems I saw with his work, he replied defensively and impulsively, without offering to complete the project to my satisfaction. If you need a quick turnaround on a word-by-word translation, he's good. But for anything more, I cannot recommend him.”
