Yuri prides himself on being able to take on challenging translation projects, and for a translation agency such as TranslateMedia, this is a highly sought after quality. When we are presented with an unusually complicated Russian legal translation project, Yuri is always one of the first translators we get in touch with. He is an exceptional translator who is capable of taking care of revisals promptly and with a professional approach. Highly recommended by all at Translate Media.

Globus Fremdsprachen

Yuri obviously has a very broad general knowledge, but his specialties lie in legal and corporate communications translations, which stand him in good stead as a specialist translator in these areas. He is also very thorough and conscientious in his work, making extra effort to ensure delivery of the highest quality end-product. Everybody that has worked with Yuri at Globus Fremdsprachen has taken great pleasure in collaborating with him and would urge others to make use of his quality translation service.

Language Made Simple

The very conscientious approach that he has always displayed in his translation projects have made our collaborations simple and quick. We consider Yuri to be a valuable translator due to his expertise, quality and reliability. Our company, Language Made Simple, will undoubtedly continue to cooperate with him!
