Alan Dein hears the story of Bryan from the US and Anna from Russia who met online - using Google Translate.
Bryan doesn’t speak Russian and Anna doesn’t speak English - they conduct their communication entirely via the online translation tool.
Alan has been following the story for Don’t Log Off for over a year, speaking to Bryan on Skype on numerous occasions. Since they first spoke, Anna decided to move to the US with her two children. She sells her house in Russia and takes just three suitcases to set up home with Bryan. The couple’s understanding of each other’s languages remains minimal.
She arrived in the US in July this year - and the couple had 90 days to get married or Anna would have to leave the country. The wedding date is set for 21st September - but then, suddenly, it’s called off… because Anna has concerns.
Alan decides to travel to Boise, Idaho to see how things work out…
