Number of followers was accurate at the time of research although we expect these to change.

A big thanks to Lucie Quinquis who helped in compiling this research and of course to all the above for putting in the time and effort to make Twitter a wonderfully-translation place!
Neil Payne established Kwintessential in 2004 upon completion of his MA in Middle Eastern Studies at SOAS University (London). His previous experience as an English language teacher, a Turkish to English translator and cultural advisor coupled with many years travelling in his twenties helped in identifying the need within business to overcome the challanges and opportunities of language and culture within international trade and commerce. The result is what you see today in Kwintessential.
