My name is Nahom Mergia. I have two BAs in Accounting and Economics. For 6 years, I had been working in The Ethiopian Herald newspaper as a Junior Reporter, Reporter, Senior Reporter, and Assistant Editor. My time and experience at the Herald gave me a good opportunity to be an excellent Amharic to English as well as English to Amharic translator, especially as I, for three years, translated full parliamentary sessions, debates and discussions including the speeches and reports of the President and Prime Minister to the House of People's Representatives. In addition, I have also performed translation works for various individuals as well as local and international institutions. I believe that such experience and exposure is considered as a good opportunity to develop translation skills.
