About me
I am a native Turkish speaker and a certified translator/interpreter with over 10 years of experience in translation, interpreting and proofreading. I have studied and lived in English speaking countries for many years. I started working as a full-time sworn in-house translator in 2007 and worked continuously for the the same translation/localization agency for 10 years until March 2017. I have literally been involved in every aspect of translation and localization industry and had the chance to develop my skills and understanding in various fields of translation profession, notably technical, legal, business and marketing fields as a result of regular daily translation assignments (ranging from 2000 to 4000 words) over the last decade. I may not be a graduate of language and translation studies (my background includes Political Science, Int. Trade and Sociology) but I firmly believe that what I lack in formal training I more than make up for with 10 years of daily on-the-job experience.

I hold more than half a dozen notarial certificates confirming my status as a sworn translator from various notary offices in Istanbul. My translations, bearing my signature and stamp, carry a significant legal weight. I am a professional translator by trade and I wish to offer my considerable experience and expertise in the technical, legal and financial fields to local and foreign outsourcers.

Some of the notable clients that I regularly worked with during the last 10 years include Nokia, 3M, Samsung, Kodak, Philips, Braun GmbH, Capital Safety, Migros T.A.Ş., Euler Hermes, Jotun Group, Ford Otosan, Doğan Holding, Koç Holding, Minteq International Inc., Opet, Statoil, Fenerbahçe Sports Club, Citibank, Garanti Bank, Turkish Bank of Agriculture, European Bank of Reconstruction and Development, Turkish State Railways, Turkish Ministry of Transport, Maritime and Communication, Kingfisher Plc, B&Q, Koçtaş, IKEA, Hyundai, Renault Trucks, Beko/Arçelik, Astra Zeneca, GSK, St. Jude Medical, Varian Medical, Siemens Healthcare, Covidien Plc, Acıbadem Healthcare Group, İstek Group of Schools, Bwin.com, Booking.com, Zipcar, YKK Group, Divan Group, Kilimdenim.
