About me
I’m an Arabic/English/Arabic translator/interpreter. Graduated in the Faculty of Languages and Translation, English Simultaneous Interpretation Department, Al Azhar University in 1981. Since then I have been working in the field with many American well known companies (United States Sports Academy, Transocean, Global Santafi). Having my own translation business gave me the opportunity to provide translation/interpretation services to many clients. World Bank, United Nations Developing Program (UNDP), Global Environment Facility (GEF), International Finance Corporation (IFC) and many other organizations, governmental bodies are some of my clients.

I’m a full member of Proz and actively participating in its different activities. If I have to talk about myself, I would say I’m accurate, precise and always adhere to the time limits. Translation art is my passion.
The following links show some of the reports and studies I translated for the World Bank:
• Reference Guide to Anti-Money Laundering and Combating the Financing of Terrorism, Second edition (Arabic)
Worldbank
• THE FIRST DECADE OF THE GEF Second Overall Performance Study

Certified translator by the Egyptian Translators Association (EGYTA), active membership No. 11143.
