English to Arabic: Autism
General field: Medical
Source text - English
The word "autism" still conveys a fixed and dreadful meaning to most people – they visualize a child mute, rocking, screaming, inaccessible, cut off from human contact. And we almost always speak of autistic children, never of autistic adults, as if such children never grew up
Translation - Arabic
لا تزال كلمة "توحد" توحي بمعنى محدد ومخيف لمعظم الناس فهم يتخيلون طفلاً أبكم ودائم التأرجح والصراخ والإنعزال والإبتعاد عن التواصل البشري. ونحن نتكلم في الغالب عن الأطفال المصابين بمرض التوحد ولا نذكر البالغين التوحديين أبداً على اعتبار بأن هؤلاء الأطفال لا يكبرون.

Bio
Qualified Interpreter with BA degree in simultaneous interpreting and Translation (Arabic <> English). I have more than 10 years of experience in consecutive, face to face and telephone interpreting and written and sight translation for both Public and Private sectors. I enjoy working individually or within teams to provide interpreting and translation service and aiming to fulfil clients' needs in terms of accuracy, confidentiality, willingness to help and providing excellent customer service.

Due to living in various Arab Countries, I have developed an excellent understanding of various Arabic dialects, traditions, cultures and religions. I respect diversity and individual differences and able to provide cultural awareness to clients, if needed.

Currently I live in Edinburgh, Scotland.
