About me

Professional Dari, Farsi (Persian) & Hazaragi Translator and DTP Specialist

The Right Quality, All The Way Through

 

My name is Amanollah Zawari. Born from an Iranian mother and an Afghan father, I am a native Farsi, Dari and Hazaragi speaker with near-native fluency in English and Pashto.

I was living in Iran until recently. I hold a B.S in Electronics from Shiraz University and I finished my M.A studies in the field of MBA at Tehran University, Iran. Currently, I am settled in United States and work as a full-time freelance translator, available 18 hours a day.


I have more than 10 years of invaluable translation experience during which I have worked for many valued national and international clients around the world. I specialize in several fields and I am a guru of major CAT and DTP tools. For further information about my services, clients, and sample translations, you are kindly requested to visit other pages of my personal website.



 

Rates

"Quality" is the theme of my job and in order to ensure a high quality and error free output, I regularly ask a colleague of mine to check my translations. My rates are never the cheapest but affordable and in line with the volume, text difficulty and deadline. Finally with a speed of 4000 words per day, I am available to manage the tightest deadlines.
