"BSL is my first language and I rely on Interpreters to access everyday life. When I am using Tina Holmes Interpreting Services, I have the reassurance and confidence that there is a high standard of professionalism, attitude and approach from Tina. A pleasure to work with..."
Former EDCS Chair
"I have worked with Tina since 2016 - itself, a recommendation as I've been a client ever since! She is always completely professional in her approach, whilst tailoring her style and demeanour to each lipspeaking assignment.
As a creative practitioner who works in diverse and sometimes challenging settings, Tina's calm and positive attitude ensures I'm always receiving full information."
DR (Visual Artist)
"I have used Tina as an interpreter on several occasions and have been nothing but impressed by the service she provides. A warm, friendly, efficient and organised interpreter. In fact, as soon as she has finished working for me, I book her straight away for the next time I will need her!"
"An excellent interpreter who was willing to be present at all times for the Deaf at the event. Highly recommended."
Ardenholme Genealogy, Bristol
"I have always found Tina to be extremely professional, reliable, on time and a pleasure to work with. She has excellent BSL skills as well as being able to adapt to various situations for customer needs."
Wright Communication Training Services
“Tina interpreted one of our cupcake classes on behalf of the Royal Association for Deaf people. She was a very professional interpreter and very approachable by everyone - including me! She helped to make our teaching easy and fun. Even though there were quite a few people in a relatively small area, Tina kept everyone calm and focussed. It was really a pleasure to meet her.”
Owner of The Cupcake Oven, Essex
"Thank you so much for your hard work today. You are a fab lady. It meant so much to us having you there. Hope to see you next time."
RM (Deaf client, medical assignment)
"Tina provided a professional, friendly service when I visited a school with a Resource Base for Hearing Impaired Pupils and was able to match the different signing needs of the students, to convey my medical terms and jargon quickly and accurately."
