My 10-minute presentation

I have to create a 10-minute presentation for the SEB class, the last one; we have no classes after that and will work on our business plans from home. I copypasted my so called clarity of offering from one of the assignments and then I got stuck (what they call a writer’s block). Then I got the brilliant idea of writing here. I have to say something about myself in the blog anyway, so why don’t I talk a little about who I am and what I do, killing two birds with one stone.

My name is Tania Samsonova. I provide information services: business and technical writing (documentation, user manuals, web-site content, SR&ED claims), translation (Russian to English and English to Russian), localization and interpreting. My motto is: “We will get your message across”.
