About

Hello!

My name is Adriana Sandru and I have been a technical translator for 19 years.

Using my background as an engineer combined with eleven years of technical education, I am able to provide the most informative, accurate and terminologically correct translation. It is my objective to remove language barriers and open up opportunities between you and potential investors and purchasers in Romania.

Over the years, I have worked with a wide range of clients including French, German and American automobile manufacturers, pharmaceutical chemical companies, Japanese dental product companies, and have served as both a scientist and translator from English into Romanian for European Scientific Projects.

I want to see you succeed. To make that happen, your product needs to be accessible and accessibility begins with coherent communication between two parties. I am more than happy to be your messenger.
