Professional practices Tim Friese endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
I'm pursuing my passion in translation and interpreting following my first career in linguistics and teaching Arabic and English. I offer highly fluent translation from Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, and Hebrew to English, specializing in legal and technical documents in specific fields and industries such as oil & gas, civil engineering, politics, agriculture, and ecology.

I also offer consecutive and liaison interpreting between Arabic, Spanish, and English in medical, legal, and business settings.

I have had the pleasure of working for notable end clients including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, GlaxoSmithKline, INFRAERO, the Israeli Ministry of Economy, the Kuwaiti Ministry of Defense, Monsanto, the National Labor Relations Board, PDVSA, PEMEX, the Securities and Exchange Commission of Brazil, Sonangol, StateFarm, and more.

Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have or requests for quotes. Thank you!
