Professional practices Crisoi endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.0).
I have a PhD in Rhetoric and Scientific and Technical Communication from the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities (May 2008). I am also a writer and translator specializing in Romanian to English and English to Romanian translations. While Romanian is my native language, I have acquired near-native fluency in English since I have moved to the US in 1998. I hold two Master's degrees, one in British Cultural Studies from the University of Bucharest and one in Technical and Scientific Communication from James Madison University.

I translate poetry for a hobby at Linguistic Treason (mostly Romanian>English, but also English>Romanian). In addition, I write regularly for a local Philadelphia magazine, The Rittenhouse Square Revue, and I blog for a fashion blog (Shoeblog).

I worked as a translator and interpreter, English<>Romanian, in Bucharest for 4 years before moving to the US. I specialized mainly in agriculture and management. Additionally, I worked for the English Service of Radio Romania International, which involved a good deal of news translation.

In the US, my translation work has been in the medical field. I interpreted for Romanian-speaking patients in hospitals in Minnesota and I translated and proofread numerous documents such as: automated voice system script for drug trials; ob-gyn hospital documentation; patient information sheets for new mothers; information sheets for patients with rashes; ICU medical charts.
