About me
Hello and thank you for visiting my profile!

For me, as a person and as a professional, "words are a form of action, capable of influencing change." (Ingrid Bengis).

I work as a freelance authorised/sworn translator for specialist texts. My areas of expertise include academic texts (especially in the field of social sciences and statistics), business reports and evaluations, administrative documents (certificates, licenses, CV-s, resumes).

An activity very dear to my heart has been translating from English and American literature into Romanian. Detecting, finding and then rendering into one's own native language an author's particular voice has always been one of the greatest challenges for me. I am happy to have been the first to bring Henry Miller and Jack Kerouac into Romania(n).

My experience as a teacher (I have been teaching English for Academic/Special Purposes to psychology, sociology and social work undergraduates for 15 years) has focused mostly on easing my students' way towards developing independent learning skills and keeping up to date with recent developments (mostly Internet-based, e-learning platforms) in teaching methods.

Finally yet importantly, this About me page would not be complete without mentioning the most challenging "job" I have had so far, that of bringing up my 21-year son with Down Syndrome. Thus, in the 1990s, when Romania was barely discovering social services for disabled persons, I had to act not only as mother and friend but also as a provider, multiple-therapist, social worker, psychologist, and numberless other roles. I am proud to say he has done well and graduated mainstream high school in June 2008.
