Voice Over Testimonials

I’ve been working with René Durán for the last year, at least once every month. I’m in fact working with him in a current project. I’d definitively recommend his services, as I’ve always received his jobs on time and with great quality, and he always reply my emails quickly. He’s always followed directives thoroughly. Kind regards, Verónica Colasanto - Director Traductia Palmas, Brazil
