Project particulars

EPK Samara needed to launch and set up a face grinder manufactured by  Fives Giustina, an Italian company, and also teach its factory personnel the basics of how to work with the machine, set it up, and maintain it. Two specialists were sent from Italy, meaning that a technical interpreter was needed to facilitate conversation between factory workers and the Italian engineers.

Project management

The competent Italian interpreters in our city could be counted on the fingers of one hand, and not all of them work with technical subjects. Happily, Irina, one of the best interpreters in Samara, agreed to build on the positive experience she had working with our company previously providing technical interpreting services in the Italian-Russian language pair.
