As a British national who was born in Hong Kong and spent his teenage years in Lebanon, I am someone with a unique upbringing and unique outlook on life. I have always excelled in an academic setting and have devoted the past 6 years of my life to learning the Arabic language, which is always an uphill struggle, and a thoroughly enjoyable one at that. I was awarded first class honours for my undergraduate degree in Arabic at the University of Edinburgh and am currently studying for a Masters at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, where I study Arabic-English Translation and Computer Assisted Translation Tools.
My professional translation experience so far is almost non-existant - I have only had one client, though he was very pleased with my work - but I am a conscientious and ambitious individual. My original goal was to become a conference interpreter from Arabic into English but I have been enjoying translation much more. My new aim is to work for translation agencies until I get enough experience and enough contacts to become a freelance translator, and hopefully work on acquiring some new languages along the way. I am currently trained in Trados and entirely computer and internet literate.
If you are interested in hiring a native English-speaking Briton with a unique understanding of Middle Eastern culture for Arabic-English translation, and whose rates are relatively low, then don't hesitate to get in touch.
