Hello, my name is Richard James Lardi, owner and founder of Language Expeditions— THE PEAK OF TRANSLATION EXCELLENCE! Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my company:
I have been a Spanish to English legal translator and interpreter for over 8 years now. Over time, I have built my business on a sound foundation of honesty, integrity, hard work, and dedication. It all took root seventeen years ago when I taught myself Spanish. I learned the language to assist me in my volunteer work. The Latin American culture and people also have deep roots in my heart. Therefore, I applied myself, studied hard, and quickly became fluent in the language. And it paid off! Each year I spend about a thousand hours working as a volunteer on construction and social service projects. Since I learned Spanish, I have had the privilege of volunteering in Puerto Rico and Bolivia. Currently I spend most of my time serving communities along the Haitian-Dominican border.
I was always curious about the interpreting field, and a friend of mine encouraged me to go to court one day to observe. That experience was quite enlightening, and before long I was attending seminars and buying practice tapes. Since Spanish is not my first language, it took me a few years—and a lot of hard work—to become a certified court interpreter. Finally, in May of 2010 my hard work and dedication paid off. I passed the test and received my certification from the Delaware Administrative Office of Courts. Along the way, I also earned a Bridging the Gap certificate in medical interpretation.
Translation and interpretation are natural fits for me. Simply put, I have a deep love of language and linguistics in general. I constantly have my head in a grammar book, style guide, or dictionary. Yes, I’m a language geek! I also have good time management skills, i.e. I meet my deadlines, which is critical in this industry. One needs to be alert to respond to his clients’ needs and he should never exaggerate his qualifications. I feel as though I have developed a solid reputation in this regard. If your business is in need of high-quality translation services, don’t hesitate to call Language Expeditions—The Peak of Translation Excellence!
Thank you once again for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
