Marina Yulis

My name is Marina Yulis and I am a qualified interpreter based in Paris. My working languages are English, Russian, French and Spanish. Among my clients are: the world leading market research group TNS, and also SAINT-GOBAIN, the world leader in the habitat and construction market; the French jewellery brand CHAUMET (see the entire list at references page).

After having graduated from Moscow State University with a Masters degree, I also obtained a French university diploma from Assas University in Paris and a Masters in Applied Foreign Languages from Paris 12 University. I have extensive knowledge of subjects as varied as international business, logistics, customs and excise procedures, banking, international law, e-commerce and marketing. I can therefore guarantee quality interpreting and translation services.

Before meeting my clients, I always study any documents they have sent me prior to our meeting, so that I fully understand their line of work and the vocabulary that is specific to their sector of activity.
