When living in a foreign country and even despite having a strong grasp of the language, certain tasks require the help of someone’s expertise. Recently in applying for jobs in french, I was required to write cover letters to my CV and follow up emails. It was very important that these documents came across as professional and well written. Delphine’s help was invaluable in these instances as I was able to send over a text in english and she provided an exceptional translation. Her grasp and depth of her written and spoken english make her ability to fluently translate into any text a massive help. Couple this with her genuine support in what you are doing and it minimizes the stress instantly. I can not recommend Delphine’s help enough.
What a relief that MyParisTouch took care of the administrative part of my installation. I was able to focus on taking up my new job. The lists of documents necessary for all administrative procedures as well as the translation of contracts: rental, insurance, telephony … were extremely useful and precious to me.
Delphine is like a breath of fresh air. She is extremely dedicated to her clients and truly wants the best for them. I needed urgent help with finding an apartment and she took the lead in a way that I didn’t have to stress or worry anymore. She was quick to answer my questions, she provided information clearly as agreed, she was structured and communicative, as well as very friendly on my sometimes unrealistic expectations so that I would have the best knowledge I needed on the Parisian market. She’s fluent in English and being French herself she understands and knows how the system and admin in France works.
It took for her 8 days to find my home for me. And that’s what she does, she finds a home, not just any apartment. I absolutely warmly recommend her services.
I had already been situated in Paris for a couple of weeks and via Delphine’s help in all things related to our getting settle in Paris, she allowed me to focus on my new professional job. She helped with setting up our internet, cell phone, nanny services for our daughter as well as helping us to acclimate to our surroundings in our new community.
