Professional practices Fitsum endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.2).
Although my two BSC and BA degrees center around Agriculture and Community Development & Leadership, I have been doing translation for the last 6+ years in three language pairs - English - Tigrinya, English - Amharic, and English-Oromo. Even if Amharic is posted in my profile, I am a native speaker of both languages which are semitic languages of common ancestor - Geez.
I have translated thousands of documents in diversified fields, but mainly medical, legal, social, educational, technical. I love doing translation and I do it professionally using one of the most convenient and reliable CAT tool- Wordfast Pro.
I am more than happy to work with any translation agency, company or individual as a freelancer.
Any translation agency, company, or individual is welcome to contact me with any potential translation or interpretation projects and assignments or questions regarding my experience or any other concerns.
