Bio
Welcome to my Profile!

I'm a native speaker of Arabic with more than five years of experience as an English>Arabic translator, transcriber & DTP specialist. As soon as I graduated from the Faculty of Education, English dep. in 2009, I started my self-education journey along with my career as a linguist. My self Education was focused on the technical tools that can help me in establishing myself in the world of language and translation such as SDL Trados, Adobe Indesign, Adobe Photoshop, etc. Besides, and because good searching skills play a dominant role in the process of translating any text, I took the Power Searching with Google course, which strongly enhanced my searching skills.

My first job after graduation was a sales agent for an American telecommunication company in Egypt specialized in overseas calling services. My job in that company, in a nutshell, was to deal with the foreign, specially Australian, clients; starting from convincing them to buy the company's services to making sure that the actual clients are using the company's offers and are enjoying them. Thins job fortified my knowledge of the different English dialects and cultures very much.

After that, I started my own from-home-business as a linguist. my first step as a freelancer was as an "English lectures transcriber". I worked as a transcriber of the English language and literature lectures of the Faculty of Arts, King Faisal University. Then I worked as a translator and a DTP specialist for many online clients who, from time to time, come back to me with new assignments.

I have always had a passion for translation, and I enjoy my job as a freelance translator very much. I always focus on quality, which, in my opinion, comes from the good understanding of both the source and target language and culture. I'm very serious about my career as a translator, that's why I always do my best to keep my clients satisfied with my services by providing top quality translation, transcription and DTP services.
