Bio
I am a qualified Translator and interpreter based in London. I am originally from Iran and Farsi in my mother tongue. I moved to UK in 2003 and I now have dual nationality as Iranian and British. As part of my education background in Iran, I studied humanities, which included history, literature, languages and philosophy. I studied law in my country but since moving to UK I have decided to pursue a career in linguistics as it has always been my interest after law.

Academically, completion of a Masters degree in Translation Studies at SOAS University allowed me to gain a good balance of both methodological and practical skills in linguistic in Farsi and English languages. It has also provided me with more command of the idiomatic and formal usage of Farsi and English, as well as an extensive grasp of technical vocabulary in commerce, law and medicine. To progress in my career I have undertaken the Diploma in Public Service Interpreting (DPSI) exam in the subject of law this year.

I have done written and oral translation from Persian to English and English to Persian for individual clients. I have worked in different areas of London and some areas of Essex and Kent. Some of the agencies that I currently work for include the Big Word, Language Line Transperfect and Language Connect.

In my translation jobs I cover a wide range of areas but mostly legal and commercial. In my three years of experience I have translated around 200,000 words, which this includes two books and a comprehensive glossary. However I have also experience in translating literature and poetry as well. For my translation jobs I translate from English to Farsi and Farsi to English, I can also translate from Dari (Afghan Persian) to English but not vice versa. Finally I do proof-reading as well as transcription.

For my interpreting service, I interpret for are NHS patients but I also have done work for social workers, counselling, embassies and asylum seekers. I hold a CRB certificate for my interpreting work.

Some of my clients that I have worked for include the Big Word, Language Connect, Language line, Transperfect, Kwintessential, World Translation, Straker Ltd, Dow Jones, BBC Persian, Red Cross, etc.

I believe I can offer my language skills, including native Persian (Farsi) language, up-to-date knowledge of both Persian and English culture for a better communication between the two worlds.
