Latin Translation PLEASE?!?

Rome's Greatest Orator: Dum Caesar et Pompejus inter se de summo imperio contendunt, Romae vivebat clarissimus orator nomine Marcus Tullius Cicero. Ille erat vir humilis generis qui per se ad summos magistratus ascenderat. Romam a patre missus, studiis et juri toto se animo dedit. Ab optimis magistris doctus est inter quos erant Mucius Scaevola et Archias. Paucis post annis in insulam Rhodum navigavit ubi multa de arte rhetorica a Molone, Graeco magistro notissimo, didicit. Apud oratores clarissimos erat optimus. Postquam Romam revenit, orationes claras habere incepit. Sextum Roscium defendit et Sullam dictatorem offendit. Melius igitur erat Ciceronem Roma discedere.

After a few years he sailed into the island of Rhodes, where he learned many things about the art of rhetoric from the very well-known Greek master Molo(n). He was the best among the most renowned orators. After he returned to Rome, he began to conduct his renowned discourses. He defended Sextus Roscius and offended the dictator Sulla. It was therefore better for Cicero to leave Rome.
