...I am just taking this opportunity to give you some positive feedback... The adjudicator personally telephoned us to say what a professional and efficient interpreter you were on the day.
Roisin Moult, Interpreter Service's Team Leader, Immigration Appellate Authority
...I am very ready and glad to confirm that Ms Sampson's standard of written translation is excellent. Though a native speaker of Russian, she shows great fluency and accuracy in her English written style. She is admirably aware of different registers of English... She loves language as such and shows very discerning judgement in all these matters, which is why I regard her as a high-calibre translator... I can also state she works very conscientiously and painstakingly. I know her to be absolutely reliable as regards meeting agreed deadlines. She has a high degree of self-motivation and independence, and is very obviously able to work unsupervised. It goes without saying that she can be absolutely trusted with confidential materials.

...Her work is characterised by an understanding of the subject matter and attention to detail of the highest order, as well as by an ability to work to strict and often demanding deadlines. On quality checks of her work, we found that consistency over the whole, even involving documents over 100 pages, was almost 100%, and with no spelling or other minor errors. In addition to this, she is flexible and pleasant to work with, and her desire to produce a really quality translation is always paramount.
