About Me

www.hebrewtranslation.com is the site of Zion Avdi, a highly skilled translator and interpreter of English to Hebrew, as well as Hebrew to English.

Mr. Avdi grew up in the historical coastal city of Akko, Israel. He earned his law degree (L.L.B.). from Hebrew University of Jerusalem, after which he practiced law in Israel, focusing on civil litigation.

Several years later he settled in Denver, Colorado---where he continued his legal studies at University of Denver, College of Law---and earned his Juris Doctorate degree (J.D.). After passing the State bar exams, he worked as an attorney in Colorado where he was involved in insurance defense cases, including environmental, toxic tort, and product liability.

It is through his education and work that Zion Avdi realized his skills at translating and interpreting. As a result, he began a career as an independent translator and interpreter in 1995, translating written text and interpreting verbal content from Hebrew into English and from English into Hebrew.

His language career expanded to cover multiple fields, such as legal, business, software, film & video subtitle quality control (script time-coding), official documentation, transcription, consecutive and escort interpreting. He also gained localization experience while working as the corporate Hebrew Terminologist at Microsoft Corp., where he provided language quality & terminology support to Microsoft’s business groups, in-country localization vendors, and Microsoft Israel.

Based in Los Angeles, California, Mr. Avdi continues to provide language services to clients worldwide.
