About me

I am the only UK based Romanian Translator and Romanian Interpreter (Romanian Conference Interpreter) holding a Masters in Translation Studies and a second one in Conference Interpreting from a UK University. I am also a Professional Police and Court Romanian Interpreter (NRPSI registered) successfully training students sitting the DPSI exam since 2010 and DipTrans from 2011.


  • I have also been providing language services as Romanian Conference Interpreter, Romanian Interpreter (Police & Court) and Romanian Translator  between Romanian and English for the legal, medical and marketing sectors since 2007
  • I discovered my passion for languages at 9 years old as I began learning French and English and I studied for many years to become a Professional Romanian Interpreter (qualified Romanian Conference Interpreter) and Translator
  • I love my work, the variety that comes with it and for me, the freedom of working as a freelancer is an added bonus.

Professional Affiliations


I have known Diana Singureanu, professionally, for the last 6 years and admire her work commitment and ethics. Diana has been teaching the DPSI Law preparatory course since September 2010 and I have received great feedback on her skills and teaching methods. Her work with the students included practising consecutive and simultaneous interpreting, sight translation and feedback on written work. She has been an excellent role model to her students, always working to high standards and that is why I am delighted to have her on my team of DPSI Tutors. I have no hesitation in recommending her as an interpreter and tutor/trainer as I trust she will be fully committed to any course/project she embarks on.

Helena El Masri – DPSI Online

Excellent job, very professional and well-mannered. Very easy to work with.

Estefania Solar, Event Manager, Bristol Summit

Every Romanian Interpreting course needs Diana – her teaching is compelling, rigorous and imbued with an uncanny knack to hit the precise ‘mot juste’ in both Romanian and English. Her Public Service Interpreting knowledge is current, topical and fresh from the reality of Romanian individuals faced with the British Legal system. It is a privilege to be her interlocutor.

My Portfolio

My Ethics

As a member of IAPTI (The International Association of Professional Translators and Interpreters), I abide by their Code of Ethics. Thus, as a professional Romanian Interpreter and Romanian Translator, I shall:


  • I shall always maintain confidentiality with regard to any information or materials (working practices, lists of clients, commercial secrets and manufacturing or technological processes) received from my clients.
  • This means that I will not disclose any part of them without permission from the client and that I shall not use them to my benefit or to the detriment of the customers or of third parties, except in cases in which disclosure of such information becomes unavoidable by reason of force majeure.


  • Always carry out translating and interpreting projects responsibly and diligently
  • Only accept projects for which I am able to guarantee a good standard of quality
  • Not take part in any practices that are detrimental to the interests of my profession
  • Keep up-to-date with the latest technologies in my profession by undertaking continuous professional development.


  • I do not take part in any activities that could be detrimental to my profession.
  • I always do my best to offer services of the highest possible standards.
  • I do not encourage or support unfair competition by offering or accepting fees below those considered fair in the market where I practice my profession.


I can do the translation myself, can you just check it for me?

I can do this for a fee however I reserve the right to take on the job only after I had the opportunity to evaluate the translation in order to establish the level of proofreading and editing required. If the quality is particularly poor (which can be expected if it was not done by a professional translator) I may have to apply a higher fee according to the amount of time I need to spend on reviewing the translation. I usually use track changes function in word so it will be a straightforward and transparent process.

How long does it take to complete a translation?

This varies according to the difficulty of texts and my availability of course. In general, my daily output is between 2-3,000 words per day. If your translation is urgent, however, we will do my best to meet the deadline (especially if it is a short document) without compromising on quality however it may be that I will have to recommend a trusted colleague to assist you if I already have other commitments.

I need certified Romanian Translation Services of my documents. What is this and how can I get it?

If the documents you need translated are to be submitted in Court or as part of an official application process (diplomas, university transcripts, or birth and marriage certificates) usually a certification will be required as well. I can organize this for you and as a professional Romanian Translator and Romanian Interpreter I can take the oath in the presence of a public notary or a solicitor (there will be an additional fee for their services). As part of this certification, I will provide a short description of my qualifications and background.
