Service Description

I'm generally interested in writing about any topics, but in specific and for the sake of detail, topics relating to business, marketing, history, computer science and sports. I've written several articles which are available for you to check on my portfolio if needed. I'm also extremely good at translating from English -> Arabic and vice versa, and according to Elance's test, I'm from the top 10% to do so.

Translating:
1- I can translate anything, blogs, e-books, games, simple documents and websites..you name it.
2- I can also translate in almost every field including business, sports, medicine, literature, financial, legal, academic, religion and so much more.

Sport & Business writing:
1- I've written several pieces on sport and business (each separately) as well as combined both in a few other essays. An example is on my portfolio where I investigated the most important financial factors in the English Premier League's economic/financial boom.

2- I'm an avid observer of several sports, including football (or 'soccer' as it's called in the US), cricket, rugby, basketball (NBA and several European leagues), handball and Olympic sports.

3- My nature being a business student, means I read a lot about business as well as write a lot. I'm majoring in finance so that's my area of expertise, though I'm still genuinely good at other areas of business.

Other writing:

1- I'm very interested in technology, computers etc. I've written a lot about several specific topics...
