As a brief introduction, I am a native speaker of Urdu and Pakistani Punjabi and hold degrees of Ph.D. Translation Studies and MPhil Linguistics. I have around 10 years of experience providing high-quality language services, such as








PoS tagging

Phonetic transcription validation 

My core strengths are:

accuracy (my work is usually 100% accurate), 

in-depth understanding of the linguistic and cultural nuances of my working languages, 

ability and experience of translating a wide variety of content, 

ability to use a number of CAT tools, 

going the extra mile to deliver the best work, 

a keen eye for detail, and

consistency, dedication, and honesty.

These have been instrumental for me in helping the translation companies maintain a successful professional relationship with such end-clients as






OPPO Mobile

UK courts

UK police and immigration

National Health Services,

and many more

It is worth-mentioning that, because of my skills and the ability to maintain high quality,

my clients have profound trust in my abilities. The following comment is just an example

of it:

"I had the pleasure of working with Salman on numerous Urdu and Punjabi translation and transcription projects. He is always extremely professional and helpful from the beginning until the end of each project. Promptness, attention to detail and respect for deadlines are just some of the main advantages of working with Salman. Apart from the above, he has assisted me in locating reliable resources for other Indic languages and dialects. Overall, it is a delight cooperating with Salman and I would highly recommend his services!" (Mimi Adams, Project Manager) (for more comments from my clients, please feel free to have a look at my LinkedIn profile)For further detail on my experience, skills, and educational background, please refer to the attached CV and do not hesitate to let me know if you require any further detail.

Let me also take the opportunity to inform the readers that I am also running a language agency ( through which I provide high-quality services in Asian and a few European languagesPlease note that this is not just another agency out there. We, at Pak Translations, are genuinely committed to quality and honesty and we strive hard to deliver top-notch services every single day. This has earned us the confidence of our clients who prefer us to other translation agencies.

The following are the main aspects of what we offer to our clients:

· High-quality translation: The translators working for the agency are well-experienced, well-educated, have years of experience, and have been selected after passing our translation tests. The result is obvious: highly accurate and fluent translations. And once a translator delivers a project, it is QA’d before delivering to the client. Of course, we are always there to respond to any post-delivery requests and queries. The outcome is that the companies we are working with are highly satisfied with our work.

· Reasonable pricing: Though we deliver quality work, it does not mean that we charge our clients a huge amount of money. Unlike many other translation agencies, our prices are very reasonable. They are simple and straightforward and do not involve any hidden costs.

· Wide range of language combinations: Please note that we do not just offer language services involving English as a source or target language. We have a number of translators for other languages too, such as Italian<>Urdu, Spanish<>Urdu, German<>Urdu, French<>Urdu, Pashto<>Arabic, and Tamil<>Arabic. As such, we can also be contacted for languages where source and target are not English.

· Blind CV's of Translators: If you consider us for a project, we can even share blind CVs of our translators for the languages required. Just recently, we have entered into a one-year contract with a medical translation company after we provided them with blind CVs that were reviewed and approved by them.

We invite you to visit our website, Proz profile, and the agency's blue board record (links are given in the signature area) to learn more about us, and if you would like to know more or have any queries (about rates, number and name of languages offered, etc.), please do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected] and/or send a query to [email protected] - the main agency email. Remember, we are always there for you.

Looking forward to serving you with our top-notch services.

Thank you!

Best regards,

Muhammad Salman Riaz, PhD, MPhil
