Interpreting for the Governor of the Tomsk Region
Another professional achievement. Today I had a chance to interpret the Governor of Tomsk Region.
Initially it was planned that I was to provide interpretation for the Russian side only. However, to the surprise of the participants, there occurred minor changes in the protocol, and I suddenly got in charge of the whole translation at the meeting. Everyone was happy in the end.
The occasion came with the visit of the Minister of Higher Education of Egypt and the President of Russian-Egyptian University. During the meeting with the governor the gentlemen discussed the issues of cooperation between our nations in the training of specialists for Egyptian nuclear industry at the facilities of Tomsk Polytechnic University as well as prospective cooperation in machine engineering, healthcare, culture and sports.
It is worth mentioning that the visit to Tomsk was the first visit to Russia for the minister.
