Katerina O. -- http://www.proz.com/profile/1225096

This is what Natalie, the team leader, said about her experience:

The members of the Russian localization team worked really hard, with enthusiasm and commitment. And now we can proudly say that the RU version of the site is complete. Thank you to all members of the team. Great work, guys!"
