Bio

I'm a native speaker of Arabic, born and living in Cairo. I consider myself a bilingual who has good command of both written and spoken Arabic and English. My work in a translation firm enabled me to translate a wide variety of documents of different natures ranging from the simple less challenging ones to the more sophisticated texts which put both my professional and personal skills to the test. It is in those trying situations that I shine.

For approximately nine years, I've become more knowledgeable about the most efficient ways to use MS Microsoft, and I'm well aware now of the necessary research tools in my field of work. Additionally, I take pride in my ability to convey actual meaning rather than providing a literal rendering and to deliver quality product within the given deadlines.
