Professional practices Ledja endorses's Professional Guidelines.

Westminster Language Services - Initially trained as a bilingual assistant to work for the Education Department supporting refugee students' studies and integration in school life, my role has ranged from straightforward interpretation/translation during lessons and meetings with parents, to monitoring target students' progress as well as carrying out and evaluating special school programmes for EAL pupils.

I have also interpreted for other public sectors, including health and social services (Child Protection conferences, meetings between parents and agencies etc).

Another part of this job was translating brochures and leaflets relating mainly to education, some of which appear on the council's website, as well as letters to individuals from different London council departments.

MantraLingua publishers - I carry out translation, proofreading and audio-narrations of children's bilingual books and have contributed a great deal in improving the quality of the translations. I particularly love working with poetry and rhymes.

I have excellent knowledge of Albanian grammar and phraseology, and always take care in producing translations that are sound in all aspects.

Books translated:

The Devil I Paid for Advice by Jeta Vojkollari (Albanian to English)

I'm coming to get you by Tony Ross (English to Albanian)
The Wild Washerwomen by John Yeoman & Quentin Blake (English to Albanian)

Qetësi! by Kate Alizadeh (English to Albanian)
