My name is Hermann Douanji, a Cameroonian citizen, French native speaker. I was born and I grew up in this country where English and French are the official languages. English is my second language. I also acquired a third and wonderful language in school which is German. I am a translator and German teacher by profession.

I was trained as a translator in the University of Buea (Cameroon) where I followed a M.A. in translation in ASTI (Advanced School of Translators and Interpreters). This training helped me upgrading my translator's skills since I started translating texts in 2014 with mades who were already professional translators.  With a B.A. in Trilingual Letters (French-English-German) obtained in the University of Dschang (Cameroon) in 2009, I have always had a passion for translation. Before that I went on a one year study in Master in Germanistic (speciality German linguistic) before getting an admission into the Higher Teachers' Training College (better known as ENS) Yaoundé (Cameroon) from where I graduated in December 2013.

Since 2014 I have worked under seniors and translated texts in several domains such as electronics, medical, pharmaceutical, engeneering, agriculture, IT, automotive, marketing,  veterinary, health science... 

The CAT tools I use are SDL Trados, Across, Wordfast, MemoQ

My services are: translation and proofreading/revison

I am available troughout the week and just partially on week-end (depending on the work volume I may have and the pressure).

A job well done is a great satisfaction.
