My name is Tamara Demetro and I am an American Citizen born and raised within the American subculture of the Rromani ethnic minority.
I speak as my first language the Rromani language. I have been a contracted interpreter for the United States Homeland Security Offices and Immigration Offices beginning in 2007.
I have undergone Federal background clearances since the beginning of my profession and have been approved for I.C.E clearance through the Department of Homeland Security 2010.
I have been requested to contract my services for private, Corporate and Federal projects from several National and International interpretation and translation companies, to include but not limited to; ASET international, Trans-perfect, Master word, Lionbridge and Language Line.
I have also contracted services for CBS studios and other projects in the Entertainment Industry.
The Government project agencies are unable to offer much information or confirmation about the nature of my work as it is by law restricted, yet once there is a project offer, there is ways to verify my successful work history
There is no present certification for this rare language in America and I am presently working with leading Anthropologist, Linguistic Professors to create such a program.
I am interested in enhancing my understanding of other Rromani dialects outside the Vlach dialect, such as Sinti, Romanchial, Hungarian Rromani, etc.
I am also interested in learning other Rromani dialects inter woven with other world languages , such as Romanian, German, etc.
I am a Native speaker who also writes in both the standard formal written language as well as the more phonetic inter tribal version of American Vlach.
I offer my services as a conscious and ethical Rromani and conduct unbiased professional high quality work.
I strive to help create projects as a team player, with the various language companies and the direct clients who request to contract my assistance.
I continually evolve my education and set skills through each work project and language research effort I give of myself and invest myself in.
There are several dialects within the Rromani language.The dialect I speak is the dialect created by the Rromani and non Rromani linguist professionals and accepted through most academic linguistic and Government sectors internationally, as our official standard language throughout the world; Vlach Rromani.
