Language has always been my passion. This is why my area of study as well as my career has revolved around languages. I have advanced degrees in Linguistics & Translation as well as English Literature. I am a freelance translator and proofreader with more than 8 years experience in the following language pairs: English-Arabic; Arabic-English; French-Arabic; French-English. I translate in all fields from legal, engineering, news, maritime, articles, newsletters, financials and brochures. I have worked on several large projects individually and as part of a team. I also have experience using TRADOS 7.
One of the largest translation projects that I have handled successfully on my own was an 100,000-word project for MENAFATF. I also translated the vast majority of the e-government portal of the Emirate of Sharjah, UAE.
I have taught translation and writing classes at the University of Alexandria, Egypt for two years, while,teaching the phonology & grammar sections of the TEFL international course. I have also taught Arabic as a foreign language (colloquial and formal dialects) for over two years. Any project related to translation and language, be it small or big, technical or general, urgent or non-urgent will be the perfect job for me.
You can rely on me for consistently delivering quality results in a timely manner. This comes mainly from my paradigm that good translation combines quality, speed, meeting deadlines and catering to the client's individual needs.
