I had the pleasure of hearing Wendy speak at a meeting a couple weeks ago.

She gives a GREAT presentation with lots of interesting (and fun!) tips on doing business abroad. Her passion really shined through and continued into the networking session.

I would definitely recommend Wendy for speaking and training.

Wendy's foundational knowledge of cultures and the associated language makes her the penultimate HUMAN translator.

Combined with her in-depth knowledge, her company Rapport International provides accurate, culturally correct and precise translations for business needs.

Villa Mont Educational Consulting

I just finished Wendy's book and ❤️ it!

I am excited to say that I finished the audio version of the book and truly gained a great amount of knowledge. As a bi/multilingual educator and advocate, I gained information that I can use to better communicate in my business.

Bonus, Wendy's explanations of how to ask for help and in what capacity will lessen the stress of how to move forward.

harbor health services

Rapport International has been the sole provider of translating services to our agency. They have been super in meeting our needs and doing it in an efficient and reliable way. 

Wendy herself has been incredible in sharing tips and providing us with feedback to help us reduce cost and streamline our processes and translating needs.

Highly recommended! 

- Director of Marketing, Harbor Health Services


I met Wendy soon after she acquired Rapport International and have watched her grow her business from an independent service provider to a company that is poised for exponential growth.

Her background in international marketing positioned her well to run this company and its evolution has been due to her drive, passion and expertise.

I know I have a great resource for foreign language translation to recommend to my clients if that need arises.
