It was a good opportunity for students to get first-handed information on the market situation in Kemerovo, Russia and abroad; and to learn which skills are needed to become a translator apart from language and knowledge of the topic, and, the main thing, how to find their place on the market if they decide to become translators or interpreters.

VERSIO Meets Dutch Ambassador
On 22nd of September Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Russia Ron van Dartel paid a visit to Kemerovo. During a short visit the Ambassador held a meeting in Krasnaya Gorka museum. Kemerovo is included into a programme of mutual cultural heritage of Russia and the Netherlands due to the fact that in the early 20th century dwelling houses for workers and specialists of the mine designed by a Dutch architect J.-B. van Loghem were constructed here. The houses used cutting-edge technologies of those times.
Versio's General Director, Ekaterina Vilchikova, was invited to the meeting as an honourable guest – participant of the project on maintaining and restoring mutual cultural heritage of Russia and the Netherlands. Since 2010 Versio Translation Agency has delivered translation and interpreting services to the museum-reserve Krasnaya Gorka and Kemerovo city and regional administrations during the visits of delegations of Dutch architects, museum workers and representatives of the Dutch Embassy in Russia.
