Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a native Arabic speaker and freelance translator with an excellent working knowledge of the English language. In Jan 2007, I finished my DUTFA, Diplome Universitaire de Traduction Francais-Arabe, from the University of Lyon II.
An in Jan 2010 I acquired from the American University in Cairo the "Professional Certificate in Print Media English - Arabic Translation" (PCMT)

My language pairs are:

French > English
English <> Arabic
French <> Arabic

Rate of output:
3000 - 3500 words per day for non-technical text
2000 - 2500 words per day for technical text

my abilities (not exceeding 200 words).
