Bio

I worked for over three years as an interpreter and translator from English to French and vice-versa but my income was greatly reduced due to the fact that my work had to be ereviewed by a professional, who often earned more than myself, though I did most of the work. I worked with expatriates in the lumbering and mining sectors as an interpreter and worked on several legal documents including partnership contracts, hiring contrcats and queries. I volunteered as a church interpreter for over three years, worked as an administrator in numerous civil engineering projects around the Central African Sub Region. As someone who spent most of his time reading especially philosophical books and general literature, I felt I had accumulated so much vocabulary in various sectors of activity. This brought about the zeal to write for others. I took on writing and this yeilded friuts with my first publication"A New Commandment" published online at amazon.com. After publishing this book, I opted for a translation, which was judged successful by most of those who proofread it. I then assessed my level of translation as good and decided to get trained as a certified professional in the field. I got enrolled in the school in 2014 and graduated in 2016 as a Senior Translator, holder of an MA (Master of Arts) in Translation ( En-Fr-En language combination). during my training, I was traind in the domain of Audio-visual Translation and in a host of other diciplines. I learnt the real art of conference interpretation and how to lobby for clients in the domain of freelancing. It is during my training that I realized I had a lot to learn; the translation software (Trados, Wordfast and MemoQ I use to perform most of my projects were learnt in school. From the moment I enrolled in the school of translation till date, I have translated well over 200 000 words, from nuclear energy to crafts manufactruing and almost every domain of life. Thanks to the ethics learnt in school, a good working environment, the respect of deadlines and the rates of my services, I have a strong conviction that my clients would never regret the fact that they entrusted their projects in my care.
