Telephone Calls

We can make telephone calls in French on your behalf and then report back to you with a detailed description of what was said

What they’ve said about us…

“I used their service to translate a document from English to French. I had contacted them on a weekend and wasn’t expecting a response until the following Monday, but they responded within an hour and I had my translation in hand by that Thursday. When I needed a second document translated with the original needing stamped as well, I tried to contact almost a dozen translators in Paris. After two days with zero responses I contacted Bilingual Minds again and they were more than happy to accommodate what I needed done. They have quickily responded to all my emails, I always have my translations in less than a week, and they are decently priced as well. They will definitely be my go-to for any future translations.”

“You deliver SO much more than linguistic services. What you actually do is strip away the anxieties that someone like me inevitably feels when having to communicate with officialdom in a foreign language. I guess translation is only a part of communication; without the all important nuances (humour, etiquette etc.) a lot can get lost. It is rare that someone surpasses my expectations but you have done so, and some! It almost feels like I’m stuck in the jungle and have bumped into Bear Grylls! Businesslike efficiency combined with a level of involvement you might see from a friend. What not to like!”

Dielle Ciesco

“We’ve used Bilingual Minds twice now. Highly recommended for communication and follow-through. Very efficient and reasonably priced service. My biggest concern with services like this is having some important detail get dropped; they have been wonderful at understanding the problem and verifying facts.”

The Importance of Changing Your Mindset When You Move Abroad

When I moved to France 7 years ago I didn't really think about the fact that living in a different country would, over time, drastically alter my way of thinking. I also didn't realise that, even though I adapted to my new home, not all expats would do the same. Let...
