Expert Transcriber, Swahili Translator, Subtitler, Virtual Assistant

Hello! I'm Virginia, English-Swahili bilingual, Swahili speaker, a lover of words, and grammar enthusiast. Originally an Art History graduate and later a trained English teacher, I have been translating, editing, and transcribing a variety of documents and producing creative, original marketing copy for the past nine years. I am currently working towards an MA in Specialized Translation (English, and SWAHILI) specializing in legal and financial translation. Over the last 4 years, I have been increasingly working with medical, pharmaceutical, and marketing content. Being a trained translator and teacher, I know the ins and outs of my working languages and strive for perfection in every text, be it the translation of a 15-word strapline, editing an academic dissertation, transcribing an interview from Swahili into English. The texts I produce are always flawless, and I approach each project from a fresh perspective that allows me to fully tune in to its requirements, whatever those may be. I work into both English (UK and US) and Swahili and can translate your texts in both directions, transcribe audio files, edit your texts to make them error-free and improve the flow and the overall quality of the writing and produce original and engaging copy that drives up your sales. To give you an idea of what I do, here are some of my recent projects: Areas covered in transcription: General business meetings Academic interviews Legal proceedings Medical research Zoom meetings and conferences Focus group interviews Typing handwritten legal documents and journals (EN) Translation - SWA to ENG transcription of market research studies in the medical field - ES-ITA translation of market research interviews - translation and proofreading of the web catalogue (EN-SWA) - translation of medical websites (EN-SWA) - translation and proofreading of social media texts and website (EN-SWA) - translation of a company's Articles of Association (IT-EN) - translation of a company's end of year accounts (SWA-EN) - translation of a series of trust documents (EN-SWA) Editing, proofreading and copywriting - editing a set of academic papers in the field of international journalism (EN) -copywriting emails following companies templates Samples of my work are available on request. Looking forward to working with you!
