Professional practices Ruth Braine endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I am a freelance Arabic-English translator and editor (native English speaker) and member of the UK Chartered Institute of Linguists. I have lived in Syria for a number of years and am currently based in the UAE.

I specialise in political, business and economic texts. Over the last two years, I have worked for Syria's leading business and private sector development agency and an economic and development consultancy firm as an in-house translator.

My freelance clients include an Arab government, a top-5 consultancy firm, international NGOs, a major Arab bank, academic researchers and many commercial businesses.

Major projects include:
- Strategy document for a Middle Eastern government
- Electoral Commission Handbook for an Arab government
- Report on the Egyptian Labour Market sponsored by EU agency European Training
- Annual report for an international bank
- Consultancy report on dairy and juice industry
- Cost of Living consultancy report
- Political and religious articles for international think tank
- Syrian Government’s “National Plan for People with Disabilities”
- Religious articles by Amr Khaled, a prominent Egyptian scholar
- Business contract for a supplier of military hardware and an Arab government
- Items of Syrian, Egyptian and Libyan legislation
- Reports from FIFA U21 Football World Cup

I have successfully completed the Institute of Linguists Diploma in Translation (General Paper, Business Paper, Social Sciences Paper), hold an MA in Translation Studies from the University of Manchester and a BA in Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies from the University of Cambridge.
