I have been in interpreting/translating jobs from English into Russian and Romanian and vice verso between study since 2004 while doing mu MA. Before I came to England (from Moldova) in the year 2000, I used to do a lot translating from Russian into Romanian and the other way round at various forums. The fact that I have accomplished MA degree (2004) and D MIn (2010) in English just improves my ability and gives me richer vocabulary. Should my application be successful, I look forward to committing to the cause and giving my best to improve my potential employer's service.
