As a graduate of the English Department in a teachers training college in Kinshasa, DR Congo, where I studied in elementary and high school and college general education courses in French, I started translating and interpreting (face to face) in 1970. In the United States, where I came in 1985 after completing two years of Diploma in English and a master's degree in applied linguistics in the United Kingdom in the 70's, I achieved a second master's degree in applied linguistics and a Ph.D in the same field. I resumed translation and interpretation on the phone. I have translated several documents for American, British, Egyptian, South African, Kenyan, French and south American language companies. I have translated telecommunication device literature from English into Lingala, medical document from English into Lingala, and from English into French, religious documents from English into Kikongo vernacular and Kituba, general administrative letters from English and French into Lingala. I have translated home construction material from English into French. Therefore, I have a long and successful experience translating, and I have done telephone interpretation with American and British social services, medical services and court systems.
