About me
I am a native speaker of Punjabi and Urdu and provide high-quality linguistic services -- such as translation, interpreting subtitling, critical writing, voice over, editing, transcription, and transcreation -- in my working languages. Though I do not purport to be the best translator with reference to my working languages, what sets me apart from many others is my linguistic talent; my passion for translation; my substantial experience as a teacher of English, translator, and translation researcher; and a number of satisfied clients from UK, USA, Vietnam, and India.

I hold M. Phil linguistics degree, and am currently pursuing my PhD in Translation Studies from the University of Leeds, Leeds, UK. Also, I have worked for around six years as lecturer in English at a public-sector university in Pakistan, where I taught a variety of linguistics-related courses -- such as Communication Skills, Functional English, Qualitative Research Methodology, Sociolinguistics, Psycholinguistics, Bilingualism, Stylistics, Computer Assisted Language Learning, and Critical Discourse Analysis.

I am also a researcher in translation (one of my research papers on translation has been accepted for presentation at an international conference), blogger (my blog URL is, and writer (the link to my translation-related article is

With this strong academic and professional background, I am sure of producing a high-quality work for my clients.
