I used my DIF training entitlement to improve my English for work. After attending English training for 1.5 hrs a week over a year, my English has improved significantly. The training sessions were adapted to my interests and needs, the firm is totally reliable, the atmosphere is great, and the trainers are excellent, especially Jenny. I recommend them highly!

Rémi Lo Monaco, Technical Sales Engineer, Eric Jaeger France

A flexible offering adapted to my needs which moved on over the course of the year I was in training. The range of materials used and subjects tackled, without ever dumbing down, was great. The trainer’s tolerance and patience builds your confidence and motivates you to speak and work hard. The team is very attentive to your needs and constraints.

Nicholas Guy, Training Manager, Sysco France

I cannot speak highly enough of Version Originale to whom I am extraordinarily grateful for turning an English training course into THE solution to a major challenge: a series of job interviews in English… passed with flying colours!

The individual training offered was already a tempting proposition, but the fact that I was able to work with an experienced, qualified trainer who is open-minded and an excellent listener, and who knows how to adapt their training to the need in question and to offer the right advice at the right time, really surpassed my expectations. To top it all off the Version Originale team is available, responsive and lovely! What more could you ask for? Well done and keep up the good work!

Isabelle Weiler, Trade & Industry Manager, Euratex

I worked with Version Originale for a five-year period. At the outset, the aim was just to maintain my level of English. However, this training course very quickly developed into a genuine collaboration providing assistance in putting together projects for my foreign colleagues. Version Originale gave me much more than the language skills, offering the benefits of their experience in project management and business development. VO helped me to structure and develop my presentation materials, and coached me prior to delivering presentations and training in English.

Sandrine Deleplanque, Directeur Collectivités, Véolia Eau

I first contacted VO to ask them to translate my CV, which they did very quickly, including a series of exchanges and questions on my sector of activity (IT) to ensure the quality of the final document. VO then supported me through the job interview process to prepare for a phone interview in English: two sessions were scheduled to fit in with my availability and I was particularly happy to have written feedback on the corrections and areas for improvement. I felt much more confident during the interview!

Anthony Roussange, Project Management Consultant

As part of our export development, we called on Version Originale for our technical translations (English, Spanish, German and Dutch).

We have worked together for five years now and we appreciate the professionalism of the support they offer, as well as the excellent turnaround of both the quotes and the translations. Delivery is quick and the working relationship extremely pleasant.

Ella Lazar, Executive Assistant, Mobilev Cranes

We have used the services of Version Originale for many years. As an Executive Search firm we have to be extremely precise and accurate when reporting on our candidates to our international clients.

The translations produced by Version Originale are of the highest quality and communicate the subtleties inherent to this type of feedback.

Philippe Palacin, Managing Directeur Algoe Executive Stanton Chase France

For a number of years we have used Version Originale for our weekly translations.

We are extremely satisfied with our collaboration with Version Originale, both in terms of the accuracy of the translations, and their utmost professionalism.

Thanks to all the Version Originale team for meeting our needs, thanks for your quick turnarounds, your availability and your consistently warm welcome. Well done!

Henrik Hagelin, Director, Expand Display France

I have used Version Originale’s translation services for ten years. The team was recommended to me by a coworker. I use VO for our most important translations. Their work allows us to communicate the messages we take great care to craft in other languages. At Version Originale, I work with people who are friendly and welcoming, capable of adapting to tight deadlines and working on documents dealing with a variety of subjects. I work with a dedicated, loyal and professional team who I trust completely.

Perle Jonot, Fédération Handicap International - Humanity & Inclusion

I really appreciate the excellent response times and efficiency of the Version Originale team. We have worked with them for several years on translations from French to English and appreciate the relationship we have with them as a client.

I also like the fact that VO takes the time to understand the background to the translations we are asking them to produce. This year we asked them to work on translations from French to Italian and worked with the network of VO translators.

This was a great success, with the translation of a training module that I will deliver to a client in Italian. I was also able to experience a day of mentoring with the Italian translator to prepare to deliver the training course… it really boosted by confidence! I was really pleased to come and work in your offices and to meet the whole VO team.
