Hi, I am. Gemechu Getachew. I am an independent contractor- translator/interpreter for over 10 years in the business. I have worked with different agencies and companies in translation and interpreting projects with a 100% satisfaction of my clients who needed my services in Oromo/Amharic - into English or viceversa. I have a wide range of experience working as a journalist in Ethiopia and employment counselor in a multicultural setting in Mennesota.

Having passed the Standard National Exam for Medical Interpreters by the International Medical Interpreters Association (IMIA), I am now waiting for the Oral Proficiency Testing in my languages to get my CMI.(There is not Oral Proficiency Test available for my language).
I am now managing my own Translation and Interpreting Company in MN - LG Language Services. Outsourcers in different languages are welcome to contact me should services in different languages in MN needed.
