Hello colleagues:

I hope you all are doing well.

Please I need your feedback and comments on this matter:

I made a new business card which has the following information (I am not including the Arabic part in the card) for convenience:

Translation Services
English - Arabic - Aramaic

e-mail: haythammansour89@yahoo.com
www.proz.com/translator/1234438

Then this is followed by my mobile and landline phone numbers. And on the left is my photo and underneath is my name Haytham Boles.

Because I worked over the past two years as Arabic instructor at a langauge school, teaching Arabic lannguage to adults (and I intend and like to offer my services as Arabic teacher in San Diego area where there is a growing need for this language), I am thinking to either include (Arabic) tutoring services with the translation services I am offering in my business card. The card would look something like this:

Translation and Arabic Tutoring Services
English - Arabic - Aramaic

Or

Doing a separate business card for teaching Arabic.

So again my question is: Can I include tutoring services along with translation services in my business card? If so, what would be the best way to display it on the card (I mean what it needs to look like). Is it okay the way I am putting it above? or do you have any other suggestions? Honestly I am new to all what it has to do with marketing.

Please your help is highly appreciated!

One other thing where I can find some samples of translators flyers. (and Arabic flyers if there are any) because I am thinking of designing a translation flyer to advertise my services. I want to do it right? I know that your experience and thoughts about this topic will be so beneficial and helpful?

Thank you for your help!

Haytham Boles

Thank you Jeff. Your suggestion sounds good. The 'Arabic Language Tutor' part looks great! Sep 18, 2011

I am wondering Jeff if there is another way of stating this information to keep the words 'Translation Services' rather than 'Translation Specialist' because the former, I think, sounds more intelligible and simpler.

What do you think? Please tell me your opinion.

And please tell me more about 'Translation Specialist'.

Thanks.

I am from México and my comments to your question would be, in this country these 2 services match perfectly well.
In connection to your flyers, we are too far away to recommend any source.

Thanks a lot Mr. Ernesto for your reply to my question. So I understand that tutoring and translation services go well together in Mexico, right?

Do you have some suggestion for me how to put (display in writing) these services together effectively in my card?

As regards flyers, I was asking for some information on how to find some samples of translators' flyers on the Internet.

Your help is much appreciated!

Thank you,
Haytham
