About me

Hello,

My name is Hugh "Jake" Lester. I am looking for language work.

I am an experienced Arabic to English and English to Arabic translator and interpreter with more than 12 years of experience in the field, in addition to more than 13 years of professional experience in which I used both English and Arabic every day.

I am a native speaker of both English and Arabic. I am have a native-level command of MSA and Egyptian colloquial, and a near-native command of Levantine and Gulf/Iraqi.

I am most competent in translating legal, business, technical, marketing and advertising, political, literary, and IT-related materials, although I have also produced work that has been highly praised in the medical field.

In addition to translation and interpretation, I have years of experience as a graphic designer and desktop publisher, and I have my own voice recording studio for recording voice overs.

I use a broad range of software from MS Office to SDL Trados. If there is any specific piece of software of interest to you, please ask.

I am very fast and very good at what I do.

If my skills are of interest to you, please let me know.

Best regards,

Hugh "Jake" Lester
