Nov 18, 2016:  Just finished an interesting back translation on emotional responses to various events. It was quite a brain-teaser as there are not always obvious one-to-one equivalents for descriptions of feelings. ...more »

About me
I specialise in translation where a high standard of fluent and imaginative English is important. I have translated numerous magazines articles, historical texts, academic articles and some literature, along with more commercial work such as website localisation, surveys, corporate reports and marketing texts. I have worked with high profile clients in Turkey and the UK and am happy to provide samples and references. I am a member of the ITI affiliated North West Translators' Network and the Collective of Women Writers and Translators. In 2015, I attended the Cunda Workshops for Translators of Turkish Literature organised by Boğaziçi University’s Department of Translation and Interpreting Studies, under the sponsorship of the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism.​ I was also a winner in the English PEN Translates literary translation competition in 2015 for my submission from the Ahmet Yorulmaz novel, Savaşın Çocukları, which can be viewed on the PEN website. On 21 October 2016, I participated in the Translating Theatre: 'Foreignisation' on Stage Symposium at Europe House in London as part of my CPD programme.
