I have had the pleasure of working with Tianlu on a series of cases involving witnesses whose native language is Mandarin. Tianlu provided excellent translation services, both in the deposition and in-court settings. In a recent case, her translation work was also complimented by the judge trying the case. If you have a matter involving Mandarin translation needs, I highly recommend speaking with Tianlu.

Tianlu was a pleasure to work with. Her excellent translation and interpretation skills, as well as her insight and cultural competence, were a big asset to our team. Our client felt very comfortable working with Tianlu, and we would absolutely work with her again.

Tianlu Jia Redmon is the best interpreter that I have had the pleasure to work with in Texas. My two Chinese clients were very nervous in preparing to give their depositions. But when we got started and they realized how warm and comforting Tianlu is, they relaxed and did a magnificent job! Using Tianlu saved us from a lot of frustration and wasted time.

Being in the language industry, I work with many interpreters but never encountered one who didn't present an accent. Tianlu impressed with her kind demeanor to attendees, and her willingness to go the extra mile by attending meetings she wasn't contracted to do, but insisted to help. Additionally, we heard glowing remarks from the Chinese attendees about how well the show went for them because of her interpreting skills. Quite frankly, she blew me away with her interpreting talent, professionalism and overall demeanor.

I attended Tianlu's seminar on interpreting depositions at the annual meeting of the American Translators Association. She broke down legal interpreting into easily manageable chunks, and made it very clear how an interpreter can work with each party in a deposition in the most effective way. She used great references and examples, and made the class interactive. Coming from the perspective of a conference interpreter, I learned a lot about interpreting depositions and it was eye-opening. Tianlu is also a consummate professional and a lovely person to work and hang out with.

I found Ms. Redmon to be excellent in every way. She was easy to work with on scheduling, showed up on time, and provided extremely proficient and professional interpreting services. In addition, my client seemed to be very comfortable and fully able to understand and communicate, with Ms. Redmon’s assistance. Over my years in the court system, I have worked with a variety of interpreters, for various different languages. I can easily say that Ms. Redmon is in the very highest tier – one of the best, and I strongly recommend her for any interpreting work.

Ms. Redmon’s simultaneous and consecutive interpretation is consistently exceptional and precise, including for complex technical content and high-level negotiations. She is by far the best interpreter we’ve used – a UN-level professional who makes challenging interpretation appear effortless.
Michael Foster, Principal, MTFA Architecture
I really enjoyed her presentation but mostly was impressed with her teaching style, composure and elegant poise. She handles herself with a rare and wonderful blend of high competence and charming humor. She did a great job preparing the group and her insights were right on point, making the trip all the more enjoyable.

Ms. Redmon was FANTASTIC. Opposing counsel even had his own interpreter show up (unexpectedly), and I hesitated to keep Ms. Redmon, thinking we might not need her. But my client agreed to keep Ms. Redmon, and I am so glad we did. She was simply excellent, she handled a challenging witness well and was spot-on all day. Thank you, thank you!!!
