What Mpasua Msonobari is working on
Aug 9, 2016 (posted via  I am offering my Swahili Translation Services to the Olympics Team by translating their daily schedule from English to Swahili. I like such short and quick translations as they give me a refreshing break from the BIG brain draining projects. Keep sending 'them' projects for Dinka, Nuer and Other African languages also. ...more, + 1 other entry »

I am a Swahili native speaker and professional with over 21 years of working experience in both translation and interpretation. 

As an English to Swahili translator I have worked in BIG and small projects for clients like Microsoft, Google, Nokia, Airbnb, Inc., and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Lionbridge just to mention but a few. 

As an English to Swahili interpreter, I started off as a simultaneous and consecutive interpreter and have done that all over the world in all kinds of conferences and seminars. I abide by all the HIPAA Rules and Regulations. I have ventured into the VRI and OPI space through different companies and platforms such as ProZ , Boostlingo, Ablio and many others and have touched the lives of many patients, parents, immigrants, refugees, students, schools, hospitals and non - profit organisations in all the 6 continents of the globe. Finally, I always endeavor to follow the code of ethics and standard practices of an OPI and VRI which include but are not limited to being accurate and complete, maintaining confidentiality, and never expressing personal opinions to the limited English proficient person.

Please read what my clients are saying about me on this link: I am the best Swahili translator on ProZ and is ranked second to none please refer to:

Indeed I would like to work with a client and or an agency which values individuality and enables me to reach my highest potential. In all my works , I have vowed to always to provide the better of the best I am well known for the slogan, you have me, you have it.
