Keywords: THE VALUE OF TRUST
The command of languages requires accuracy and having been able to acquire a deep internalization of linguistic structures.
Those of us who have completed the career as Public Translators have strong advantages over those who have not. One of them is the fact that Public Translators have received a constant training in the discipline of translating faithfully the meaning which the original texts (official documents or other) aim to convey.
This is one of the main aspects of my personal profile which is and proved to be so important while I worked for the Ministry of Defense of my country (Uruguay, South America) making translations of official documents and in the Embassy of the Arab Republic of Egypt, where the personal and professional trust is essential.
This valuable experience together with my constant language practice in teaching English as a private teacher results in a wide repertoire of resources with which I am quite familiar.
