Orgeladviseur, Duitsland:

Dr. Ortgies heeft de tekst nauwkeurig en binnen de afgesproken tijd vertaald, zodat deze vertaling een van de pijlers bij het restauratieproject van het beroemde orgel kon zijn.

Ik ben tevreden met Ibo Ortgies’ vertaling: nauwgezet uitgevoerd en op tijd voor de delicate restauratie van dit uiterst waardevolle orgel[.]

Professor (muziekwetenschap), Nederland
Bovendien kan genoteerd worden hoe goed Ortgies de Nederlandse taal beheerst.

Ibo Ortgies heeft regelmatig teksten in het Duits vertaald en steeds was ik daar heel tevreden mee. De hoofdstukken in zijn dissertatie over de orgels in Alkmaar en Zwolle getuigen van de nauwgezetheid waarmee Ortgies Nederlands leest en dat in het Duits vertaalt, in het bijzonder historische Nederlandse teksten van de 17de tot de 19de eeuw.

Ik werk altijd graag met Ortgies samen. Hij werkt zorgvuldig, houdt zich precies aan wat hij zegt en levert alles op tijd af. Ik kan hem aan iedereen die onderzoek doet op het terrein van de muziek en/of de bouw van muziekinstrumenten of die tekstvertalingen op deze terreinen nodig heeft, aanbevelen.

Professor (Muziek; bespeler van klavierinstrumenten), USA
Ibo Ortgies is an exceptionally intelligent and perceptive individual whose work is characterized by unscrupulous attention to detail and unrelenting fastidiousness. In all that he does he brings a breadth of historical and cultural knowledge that sets him apart from his colleagues.

I have, on occasion, availed myself of his expertise as a translator, and have found his work to be of exceptionally high quality. While many translators are able to convey the gist or perhaps even the precise meaning of a text, Mr. Ortgies takes special care to capture the nuance of the text in his translations. This has been especially important in cases in which subtleties of humor or meaning are in danger of being lost in translation. For a recent lecture … I relied on a German translation of my original English text by Mr. Ortgies. The result was a translation that captured beautifully the full intent of my original text, and that was, therefore, very well received by the listeners. It was my pleasure to acknowledge the translator’s work to those in attendance. In addition to translating, Ortgies provided valuable editorial comments, and I remain very grateful to him for the role he played in making my work better.

In short, I recommend Mr. Ortgies to you enthusiastically and without the slightest hesitation or qualification. The quality and timeliness of his work is exemplary, and I am certain that anyone entrusting him with the translation of any work will be fully satisfied with the result.
