The Beauty Uprising

“I love River Linguistics—these guys are a real pleasure to work with. As a newbie to managing translations in DITA, I have relied on their expert help to navigate the labyrinthine process of exporting and importing DITA-based technical manuals for localization in multiple languages—and they’re always willing to assist. It feels more like a partnership than a client/vendor relationship, all of us working together to get the job done. River is always on time, responsive to my needs, and ready to go that “extra mile” to ensure the highest standard of quality for the end product. I could not recommend them more highly!“ Kate Johnson
