Service Description

Throughout my professional life, I've successfully provided superior translating, editing and proofreading in English, French and Arabic for books, articles, brochures, annual reports, plotter proofs and press sheets, etc...

I accurately translated, reviewed and corrected documents and clients’ copy for spelling, style and punctuation errors using standard proofreading editing marks.

I was recognized by clients and managers for fast delivery of translating and reading projects within set deadlines, enabling the company to print more in less time.

I developed a query process suggesting multiple edits that improved and corrected clients’ copy and minimized mistakes.

I minimized considerably the reprinting and waste by thoroughly proofreading the copy, book proofs and the press sheets, with considerable focus on color separations.

I increased the advertisement flow to the magazine by thousands of dollars through continuously encouraging businessmen and managers, while attending conferences and seminars, to use the magazine to promote their companies.

I increased the number of subscribers among our clients in the Arab world, Europe and the Americas by sending letters, providing discounted advertisements and publishing free articles on each subscriber.

Language Pairs: English-Arabic/Arabic-English/French-Arabic/French-English/English-French
