"I had the pleasure to appreciate Eve Tarm's skills since 1990. As an interpreter able to work in most difficult situations, Eve Tarm has done an excellent job with both lengthy on-spot interpreting and demanding written texts. I would gladly recommend her as an interpreter and translator," Lennart Meri, President of Estonia, 1995.

"I had the pleasure of frequently working with Eve Tarm over the two and a half years I was the press and cultural attache at the American Embassy in Estonia, from 1991 to 1994. I regularly hired Ms. Tarm as a translator for high-level visitors coming from the U.S. to Estonia. Ms. Tarm was considered by myself and my boss, then-ambassador Robert Frasure, to be simply the best translator in Estonia, equally capable of simultaneous and consecutive translation from English into Estonian and back again.

Ms. Tarm's remarkable command of the languages made her invaluable in complicated sensitive discussions where expression was critical. She is extraordinarily accurate and possesses an outstanding ability to precisely translate large blocks of speech, which may b the result of her journalistic experience. Ms. Tarm was always my translator of choice, beginning with the visit to Estonia by Vice-President Dan Quayle in February 1992.

In addition to her talent as a world-class translator, Ms. Tarm is intelligent, discreet and reliable. I give her my highest possible recommendation," Sandra Kaiser, First Secretary, Press and cultural attache for the German state of North Rhine Westfalia, 1995
