Professional practices Boniface Kyalo endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I am a professional translator based in Nairobi, Kenya, my native language is Swahili, and I have over 12 years experience translating and localizing high level projects that require a great deal of responsibility.

My areas of expertise include mobile apps, games, IT, hardware, software and communications. Additional fields include business, marketing, general text, health, government, legal, religion, transcriptions, immigration and neutralization, as well as humanities fields of culture and arts.

I am well versatile and proficient in using CAT tools like Idiom WorldServer, Translation Workspace, Wordfast, MemoQ, and Trados Studio.
