Dear Colleagues,
I have received the following message from an Iraqi student who is seeking your help.
I would be so grateful if you can lend a hand or email her (aveen4@yahoo.com )too since internet services in Iraq are miserable due to electricity failure and economic misery and she has no idea about proz, She just emailed me because I am internationally known as the General Coordinator of World Arabic Translators Association "under construction" and my email address is known worldwide.
Many thanks to you all
Amer Al Azem
WATA General Coordinator

Dear Aveen,
The Coordinator WATA, vide his posting in the Proz.com has indicated that you require certain material for your paper on translation ethics. While I am not in a position to send you hard copies of the articles dealing with this subject, I suggest that you go to google (www.google.com) and type the term translation ethics in the search bar and click search. There are more than 500,000 hits for this term and you can pick and choose from the same.
