« We carefully select our translators to match every unique project, » explains Roy. « We also work to help grow and develop the translation industry. » The speaker will explain, among other things, the importance and advantages of using a professional translation service.

Bonnie Gallant, executive director of RDÉE Prince Edward Island, is very pleased to welcome Roy to the Island once again, especially now that the RDÉE sits on Alianco’s board of directors.
