English-French

Hi Breese,

I unfortunately cannot do much with the Swahili part but I'd be glad to help with the English to French translation! I am a French student and studied in both languages, and also currently translating movie subtitles for a documentary for the European Women's Lobby.
In case you need some certificate, I scored 8 to my last IELTS test last semester.

Anyway, if I can be useful, please do not hesitate!

Best regards,
Aurore

Thanks

Hey there,

i hope can help translating these materials if you wish so. I have a five year degree in English Language Teaching and French is the official language in my country. Regarding Swahili, it is the first language in my city.Actually it is not standard at all, but i can easily manage.

Good regards

papy
