Tembua - The Precision Language Solution

The Tembua team thoroughly enjoyed our 15,000 mile trek to the Arab Health 2014 Conference in Dubai. We had a wonderful time learning about the culture and meeting people from all over the world. Of course, we hope to build relationships with them too. If you're curious about our experiences we'd love to share them. Just give us a call or an email! 

Thank You,

Patricia May - CEO

Thinking About Doing Business in Russia?

I traveled through Sochi when a student in Russia. It's a beautiful city with palms, gardens and, of course, the nearby mountains. 

In honor of the recent Olympics we thought it would be fun to highlight some interesting facts about Russia. Enjoy!
  • Did you know the Russian language does not include the definite or indefinite articles 'the' and 'a'?
