Service Description

My language pair is Arabic-English and I translate both ways. Each translation I do is tailored to suit the purpose of the translation and meet the client's specifications. I work on big as well as small translation projects. I also do proofreading and will arrange for another linguist to proofread my translation if the client would like me to do so.

I pay meticulous attention to detail at every stage of the translation process to ensure accuracy and fluency.
