Happy clients

Martina Knecht is phenomenal. She brilliantly translated our texts from Italian into various languages (German, French and English) and even improved them with an honest critical spirit.


We particularly appreciated Martina's involvement not only on the technical, but also on the emotional level. 


It's great to collaborate with people who love their work!

We have come to appreciate Martina Knecht as a serious, reliable and punctual professional. Her ability to respond to a wide range of situations was a great help in providing our guests with a quality museum experience. 


Martina's skills in dealing with visitors and her knowledge of the arts are a huge asset to our museum business and we believe they can be an asset to any other company. 


This is why we are happy to recommend Hypertext to anyone who values quality in their work.

Hypertext works professionally, respecting delivery terms and ensuring transparent and reliable invoicing.


Martina Knecht is a dedicated, reliable person whom we would like to recommend. Competent both in terms of content and language, thanks to her artistic training she has a deep understanding of the most complex texts, transferring them with confidence into the other language.


We receive many compliments for her translations, especially from our Italian-speaking audience.
