About me
I began translating in 2003 whilst still at the University of Leeds. I was appointed the official translator for Leeds Grand Mosque and during that time, and after graduation, I translated political and medical documents for local clients.

Since 2005 I have translated several sections of classical Islamic texts and articles, and upon qualifying with a DipTransIoLET in 2007 I began translating several government plans, including military and construction plans.

Towards the end of the year I translated a book entitled ‘Islam or the Flood’, due to be published soon, which is of the political/religious genre. I also translated a lengthy tract on the Great Syrian Revolt.

I’m currently translating a series of large theological texts as part of a long-term project for a new publisher and in recent months I have been translating many official documents, such as birth, marriage and death certificates, ID cards, health cards, report cards etc.

I am able to translate both classical and modern Arabic and I always to try to be professional and meticulous, ensuring that my translations represent the originals as accurately as possible. This includes not just the language but tables, borders, shading, font size etc.

In March 2008 I was admitted as a Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists in London (MCIL).
