I am a freelance translator based in Islamabad.

I have done Masters in English Language and Literature from a renowned Pakistani university and have been working in the field for the last 17 years. I have worked for Islamabad-based translation agency, providing translation services to foreign missions based in Islamabad and score of other translation agencies [details to be provided on request].

I would be glad to work as freelance translator for English-Urdu, English-Punjabi, [vice versa] and language pairs with your agency. I believe in providing standard translation within deadline to my clients. My specialties are political press, preparing summary of Urdu press, international developments, economy, general business, law, energy, website/software localization, etc.

I believe in providing standard translation within deadline to my clients.

My experiences specific to media translation is as below:

1. Pakistan Television News
I've worked with Pakistan's state TV, PTV News, as editor-cum-translator for over 13 years. I edited news items, reports, documentaries and articles English to Urdu and vice versa. Before that, I'd worked Pakistan's leading English daily, The Nation, as sub-editor.

2. FBIS, US Embassy, Islamabad
Part-time, I'd been working as lead editor-cum-translator with Capital Consultancy, an Islamabad-based agency, providing translation/editing services to US Embassy and FBIS [Federal Bureau of Information Services]. I translated news reports, columns and articles of Urdu newspapers into English. I also translated three books for them.

For about five years, through US-based agency Glyph Language Services, I translated and edited news reports, columns and articles for US Defense Department's now defunct website,

4. US State Department
Through US-based agency, Schreiber Translations, Inc, I translated news articles, features and reports for US State Department's website,
