Redshift used as a timescale?

Hi, I'm trying to write a short piece on a simulation run in california of the formation of a Milky-Way sized galaxy, and the simulation is being run "from redshift 104.3 up to the present". I was just wondering how you convert a redshift value to time? I'm assuming redshift 104.3 is when our galaxy is thought to have first started forming, but I'm interested to know the time in years.
Thanks.
