I've been in the translaion activity for about 30 years; I have translated about 30 books in literature , and published over 20 books of my translatin. The rest never published in my own country for censurship reasons, or never published. I'm a fulltime Translator , and translate mostly what I see to be the best for our reades in the arab world.I always take my time in my work and hate to be pushed to finish it.
I translate from English and American literature. Some authors I have already translated a number of their writings are : Henry Miller , James Joyce , Sherwood Anderson, Gore Vidal , N.Kazantzakis ( though english ), Hermann Hesse ( through English ), Jean Genet ( through English ) , D.H Lawrence..
In Our region the translator takes about 1 to 3 US$ for one page ,of any size, ( which is very low indeed ! )
Most of the time I can not find the books I want to translate in my country, so I depend on my friends in other coutries to supply me with them .
