"I work with highly educated, experienced and trained translators/interpreters and teachers with relevant professional qualifications, including DPSI and/or Higher Education translating degrees. Most of our translators have years of work experience in other industries.  I personally select all the candidates, locally-based ones - after a face-to-face interview.
