Service Description

I have experience translating written material in MSA (Modern Standard Arabic or Fus'ha), as well as audio material in MSA and several Arabic dialects (Syrian, Lebanese, Jordanian, Palestinian and Saudi).

I also have experience making transcriptions in English and timecoding English translations of Arabic video material. I can proofread English material, including translations made by non-native speakers.

My translations adhere to the requested style - either a more liberal translation where I concentrate on making the English seem natural, or a more 'forensic' translation, keeping close to the Arabic sentence structure, useful for video editing.

Whatever the style, you can rest assured that my translations will be in clear and accurate English.

I am willing and able, when appropriate, to provide cultural explanations and details in footnotes on a translation.
