The Translator

I am a Swahili speaking Kenyan with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Swahili from (School of Swahili and African – Kenyatta University, Nairobi, Kenya). I translate into Swahili and I am fluent in English. I am an independent, and I am working my way up in translation, tutoring, proofreading and editing in Swahili language.

My objective is to endow my clients with English to Swahili translation in a reliable and appropriate approach that is precise, ethnically acceptable, and reader-friendly on a freelance basis.

My interest in linguistics was gradually shaped throughout my life by all the different ways in which I have experienced languages: as a learner, translator, and as a teacher.

My native language is Swahili and having completed a Bachelors degree in Swahili Language and I have a 4-year experience in translations.

I can translate a wide variety of fields IT, Computer software, Computer hardware, Finance, Tourism and Hospitality, legal, marketing, general business, telecommunication, religion, as well as humanities fields of culture and arts among others.

I speak, read, and write proficiently in both Swahili and English which I was examined in my school education.
