The Editing Centre team is led by a language expert with international academic and industry experience. Dr Mambambo was the first in Africa to translate “Decolonising the Mind“. He was nominated for and awarded a prestigious postdoctoral research fellowship at Rhodes University in June 2021, where he focused on expanding his “Decolonising the mind” project into five other African languages: isiZulu, isiXhosa, Sesotho, Ndebele (Zim) and Kiswahili. He has been invited as a guest speaker at some universities in England to speak about his initiatives on the language front. He was recruited for a position as Meta (Facebook) Senior Linguist. He has many years of experience in localisation, editing, proofreading and translation. He has edited published texts and spoken at international conferences.
