About me
Certified PROs.jpg
The Power of a Word Connects the World

I am an Egyptian native Arabic speaker with a fluent English tongue working in English/Arabic/English language pairs with 16 years hands-on translation experience. I am also an Associate Member at the American Translators Association and a certified English/Arabic/English professional translator full member at Proz Certified Pro Network, Egyta, ATN-APTs and a translation instructor at ATIDA and ATN-APTs.

I am an English School graduate, holder of B.A. in English Language and Literature (with an average grade "Good") from Cairo University, Egypt. Right after my graduation, I was keen to pursue my studies in the field that I wished to be my career so I studied Translation at the American University in Cairo where I got a diploma in translation, namely; the "Full Time Interpretation and Translation Certificate".

In 2007, I started to update my academic knowledge at the American University in Cairo and got the "Groundwork Translation Certificate" - with distinction, and the "Career Certificate in Legal Translation" and about to complete the "Professional Diploma in UN & Legal Translation (besides completion of Financial/Commercial, Print Media and Documentary translation domains "with distinction") from The American University in Cairo in 2009.

To enhance the technical efficiency of my work, drive quality and consistency throughout translated files, comply with clients' requests for a quick delivery, observe terminology consistency throughout translation projects, especially in large size projects, and work on all file formats; from Microsoft Word to the more sophisticated file formats like Adobe InDesign, I use SDL Trados Studio 2014.

I work with SDL Trados Studio 2014

My passion for translation goes back to preparatory and secondary stages at school when I used to be meticulous about knowing the exact meaning of every word from the dictionary to give an accurate rendering. I'm really not exaggerating to say that my first translation project started so early when I was only a secondary student helping one of my relatives in the summer vacation by translating the subject matter of her MA thesis into Arabic. Her thesis was on the Art of Decoration.

I started my career as secretary to British and American managers and directors. Therefore, translation was among the main tasks of my job. After the introduction of the internet in Egypt, translation became my main job.

I worked as a freelance translator for some time, then I joined the "Centre for Environment and Development for the Arab Region and Europe" (a Non-Profit International Organization working mainly with the UN Organizations such as the UNDP, UNEP, FAO, and WFP in Development and Environment issues) as a Senior Translator for three years. For the ensuing three years, I worked as a Senior Translation Officer in charge of the Translation Unit at the Egyptian Unity Bank. Preferring to make use of all my fields of specialty, I decided to quit the bank in April, 2010 and resume my career again as a freelance certified professional translator. And now with a vast experience in many domains, supported with various certifications and continuous study, I'm now proud to be a direct translation provider to Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Centre for Environment and Development for the Arab Region and Europe (CEDARE) and many other international clients mentioned above in my profile.

I don't like to speak about myself, but my translation can speak for me.

Try and judge for yourself!
