Bio
Born and raised in Turkey, I graduated from Robert College, an American high school in Istanbul providing education in English. Next, I studied Business Administration in Bosphorus University.
I worked as a translator for two years in the beginning of my career. Then I went ahead with my family business as an antiques dealer until 1999, when I decided to move to USA.
I lived in New Jersey for 8 years working as Sales Manager of an electronics retail chain. In 2007 I returned to Turkey and started working as Operations Manager for an insurance company.

In 2010 I decided to go back to my starting point and since then I have been working as a freelance English-to-Turkish translator.
My clients include translation agencies, large hotel groups, hospital groups, software and IT companies, insurance companies, executive search companies and law offices.
When you choose me to work on your documents, you benefit from my Turkish language writing skills, which are excellent: many of my clients come to me when they have particularly tricky or sensitive documents to be translated. I always match the style of my output to the document you require, providing effective communication of your message.
I am also available when you need me - I work seven days a week, as required. I am proud to announce that there has never been a case where my delivery was delayed; I always respect deadlines. Why not contact me for a quote?
