Bio

Born in Somalia and educated in
Kenya. I am a freelance translator for the pair languages (English, Somali). My areas of expertise include Law, Legal, Medical, Religion, Business,
Technical, General, website and social media content. I have been in the translation industry for the past
four years, working for All-Locatrans, Translators Without Borders, Lionsbridge, Tremsom, Transparent and Somali
Translation Consultancy. I have translated more than 1 million words in my
translation career and 85,600 more as a voluntary translator. Somali is my
native language and Maay-Maay is my native dialect.

 

I have worked for a humanitarian
agency too and I enjoy reading publications on humanities and sciences. To me,
providing top quality translations and respecting the client’s deadlines, are
the most important things. Likewise, I prefer translating the message of the
text rather than providing literal translation of it.
