    Translating English to Hebrew

    Israel - Last active: 10 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 1

    I'm Translating English posts/ articles/ guides and more, to Hebrew. NOT using Google translate allows me to 'enter' the writers' head and eyes, and keep the text comprehensive and logical. I believe communication with the client is one of the top keys for a successful project. I guarantee no spelling mistakes and using proper Hebrew grammar. In addition, I provide proofreading services for Hebrew texts, and Voice-over for LMSs.
