Rod Martel for Job #38724 Female German Barbara was asked to interpret a very difficult piece using a German accent. She communicated with me until she and I understood the task and then presented a "spot on" correct product. She was able to fulfill my request to segment the job into smaller mp3 files. Her voiceover work will enhance our project greatly. Thanks!Jul 12, 2011
