Professional practices nelly matthews endorses's Professional Guidelines.
My specialty is Romanian-English-French legal translator/interpreter with Licence No. 4131/2000 issued by the Ministry of Justice Romania.

In Romania I worked for five years for a private company, SC Britania SRL Cluj, a School of Foreign languages and translating agency where I was teaching English and translating mainly official documents into/from the languages mentioned above. However, I also translated form the medical, technical, social sciences, IT, education, human resources, management, marketing, and other general fields.

In 2004 I moved to New Zealand and started working as a freelancer. I am a member of NZSTI and a member of IAPTI; profile at

While in New Zealand I also completed a Bachelor of Education (TESOL) at Massey University and I taught English to emmigrants. I have also done Court and police interpreting and translating work for different companies from overseas and New Zealand.

The last three years brought work in more specialized areas like government and politics for the EU, many projects in the medical and clinical trials fields and pharmaceuticals.
