On 19 March SCIT hosted Boris Naimushin, interpreter and trainer at New Bulgarian University. Our guest shared his experiences as an interpreter, including his work with President of Bulgaria, spoke about the specifics of learning Bulgarian as compared with Russian and drew some interesting examples from the interpreter’s practice. He also gave useful advice about collaborating with clients and colleagues. Boris Naimushin came across as an open, friendly and highly professional specialist whose opinion is worth listening to. Bulgarian students attending the meeting confirmed this, too.
