My qualifications

2015: MSc in Arabic-English Translation and Conference Interpreting, Heriot-Watt University, UK.

2012: BA in Transcultural Communication (Arabic <> German, English <> German) from Karl-Franzens University in Graz, Austria. My dissertation was about the rendering of ideological conflict in articles on the Arab-Israeli conflict translated from English into Arabic.
