    Dear Polina,
    As I promised, I am writing to offer my services. Next month I am starting a 2-3 year course in professional translation. My speciality is Russian, but I can also do German translation (i.e. from Russian and German into English). I could start a project at the beginning of next Summer, after my academic commitments finish in June.
    It was so nice to meet and chat with you last Friday in Middelburg!
    Warm Regards,
    Rebecca Evans

    Hi, Paulina,

    Just curious: who is Michael J. Prince.

    Is he an American, currently or ex faculty, Boston University?

    Please let me know.
