To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Luke Lee and I am writing this letter of recommendation for Natasha Martynova. I had the pleasure of working with Natasha over the period of February 22nd – 26th during my time in Kharkov, Ukraine.
I came to know Natasha during my business with agency. Natasha provided Russian to English (as well as English to Russian) interpretation during several conversations over Skype as well as in-person meetings during my five-day stay in Kharkov. Natasha’s interpretation was accurate, efficient and reliable. We spent up to six hours together each day (when I was getting to know the woman who would become my current partner) and my experience was all the more pleasant because of Natasha’s skills and presence.
I have worked with many different interpreters because of my occupation in social services. The quality I value most in interpreters is integrity. This was something that Natasha demonstrated when I worked with her. The act of interpretation is not always easy because of region-specific vocabulary, idioms and cultural differences in language. The most important thing was that when something was unclear, Natasha would take time and care to confirm what I meant. I valued this immensely and I think this is such an important quality.
I found Natasha to be intelligent, articulate and very personable as well. I recommend her fully.
