Translating Adventures with Google

Larry Page and Sergey Brin. These two gentlemen have always been role models of mine. Like billions of other human beings, I had always used google but had no idea that the two geniuses behind it were just some young folks who had been born less than ten years before my own birth. Can you believe that they founded this amazing company in 1998 when they were still in their twenties! Wow! Power to the young people indeed.
It was with a humble, proud and very grateful heart that I said got a great deal to translate more than two hundred thousand words for google. Yap. You got that right – an assignment of translating more than two hundred thousand words for google. How cool is that! A big translation job for one of the coolest companies on earth!
I felt proud of myself that I am part of the Google revolution of injecting Swahili into the Google tools and platforms. Quite challenging as they would send tasks daily to be done and delivered for them to update their online tools and programs.
