Hello, there! There is ONE fact about me you may need to know: I NEVER missed a deadline - NEVER! I settle the deadline in advance.!

Briefly, allow me to introduce myself.

I am a Somali native speaker – born and raised in Somalia.
I graduated from the
Somali Natinal Unversity [Jaamacadda Ummadda Soomaaliyeed]
with an BA in Accounting and
DeVry University, Decatur, Georgia, USA with B.Sc. I now reside in the USA.

I am also an educator, I teach ESOL - I have been working for the school system for more than fourteen years. I hold a secondary education teacher certification.
(a teaching certificate - Business Education) (K7‐12) in the State of Georgia).

I am a professional translator, I translate from English into Somali, with over seventeen years of experience with translating,
proofreading, and editing. I also provide voice-over services.

With each project I undertake, I guarantee high quality work delivered on or before the deadline.
I also provide prompt responses to phone calls and emails.

I am a certified Somali language proficiency tester by
American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL),
a national organization dedicated to the improvement and expansion of the teaching and learning
of all languages at all levels of instruction throughout the U.S. I have been conducting
Oral Proficiency Interview tests or OPI tests in Somali languages since 2009.
This is a test that determines how well a person speaks Somali language by
comparing his or her performance of specific communication tasks.

At any moment you choose my services and would like references, I will gladly supply one to you. Just ask.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
