My Office Evolution

It all started in 1991. I rented my first apartment on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, got accredited by the American Translators Association and started my business.

The smartest decision I made from the very beginning was subscribing to a business phone line, which provided me with free listing in the Yellow Pages under Translators and printing business cards. This is what it looked like. Pretty naive and quite primitive but it brought me a lot of clients. Remember, it was the time when things "Soviet" were in.


It was a time when Microsoft Office 95 was still four years away, and everybody was using Word Perfect 5.1. It was good but MS Word turned out to be more user-friendly. No wonder it became so popular.
