About me
With fifteen years of experience as a freelance translator and advanced degrees in linguistics, Middle Eastern studies and business, I concentrate on projects related to finance, business in the Arab World, R&D, entrepreneurship and telecommunications.

Although I work for clients all over the world, most of them tend to be located in Western Europe, Japan, the Middle East, and the NAFTA area.

In addition to linguistic consultancies, I also conduct dedicated research and consulting projects in my areas of expertise. These tend to be in the areas of market research, due diligence and public policy.

My output has also included the production of on campus and distance learning materials for academic institutions, including Trinity College Dublin (TCD) and SOAS, University of London.
