My name is Michael, an Architect by training and a native English speaker (en_GB). My lifelong passion for languages and for the written word quite naturally leads me to a career in translation and creative writing which led me to enroll for GroBes Deutsches Sprachdiplom (GDS) course and IoL Diploma in Translation (German;major, Dutch/French/Italian;minor). My experience in translation has come through working as an Architect + Translator for over 3 years in General, Commerce/Industry, Organic Product, Construction, General Medicine, General Engineering and IT Domains. As an architect, I'm stick to my PC 24/7, drafting, modelling or translating. So, I'll sure be available almost all the time.

My burst translation capacity is 2500 words a day.

My philosophy:Translating is an unrelenting endeavor to craft words into a perfect work of art; it requires both technique, passion and talent.

I pride myself in delivering high quality translations, as well as a professional service, which means that:

-My translations are delivered on time
-They are delivered in the required format (Familiar with translation software tools)
-They use the relevant terminology and are well-written
-My translations provide good value for money
-I only translate into my native language; German/Dutch/French/Italian > English (en_GB/en_US)
-I translate by default into en_GB as I was raised and by that had all my academic training
-I accept translation jobs that are tailored to any field possible less explicit or violent contents.
-As per on demand, I also translate from Nigerian language (Yoruba) into English and vice-versa.
