My name is Esther Tei. I’m a Linguist and a Public Relations Officer with a decade of experience working as a freelance interpreter/translator.

I hold a Graduate Diploma (Linguistics) from Kenyatta University and currently studying Public Relations and Diplomacy in Mount Kenya University. I have been working as a translator/interpreter for nine years. As an accomplished translator, I major in translating information from English to Swahili and vice versa.
I have worked as an interpreter/translator in the civil service and with my ten years of experience, I have mastered my craft.
My career objectives include working in a organization where I can demonstrate my skills and personality with the sole purpose of  ensuring customer satisfaction. I am a well versed public relations officer as well as translator/interpreter and customer service has always been my top priority.
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, reading and moments with family.
You can contact me with your project on +254733931228 or email me on [email protected] and I will be at your service!!
