I provide professional and reliable translation services from and into Arabic and English.

Using different resources and consulting with relevant experts, I can guarantee the quality of the translations. The original formatting of the documents is preserved whenever possible (be it, for example, a PowerPoint presentation, a Front page or an HTML document).

Though I have been for long time working on different types of texts, I specialise in translating legal, economic and marketing texts.

I am SDL TRADOS Certified.

You are most welcome to contact me for references and samples of my work.
