what our clients say

Though I now know the many impacts the Translation Unit faces in LAUSD, our team at Gratts was extremely fortunate to have a translator, Beatriz Ramirez, attend our IEP. Ms. Ramirez was very professional from the moment we greeted one another, courteous to the parent and right away began translating as we waited for the meeting to begin.

The interpreter handled a difficult situation very well.
