About me
My experience with official translation lies primarily with the micro-finance company Kiva as I have just begun part-time work with them translating descriptions of loans this month. Before this I was a student of Arabic for four and a half years in various programs including programs at the Center for Arabic Study Abroad at the American University in Cairo under the auspices of a Full Arabic Language Fulbright Grant. This period of study lasted a year and half and took place immediately after I graduated from the University of Virginia, where I studied Arabic for three years. Also in college, I completed two study abroad programs in the Arab World. One was in Irbid, Jordan with the University of Virginia’s intensive Arabic language program at Yarmouk University, which lasted a period of two months. The second was in Cairo, Egypt with Home Language International for a period of five weeks. As can be seen from my record, though I am still in the early stages of beginning work as a translator, I have extensive experience with Arabic in many fields both scholarly and journalistic, and I am able to read Arabic texts with little to no difficulty. I have many samples of practice translations I have done on my own initiative, and if you would like to see any of these samples, I welcome such requests.
I graduated from the University of Virginia with a major in Middle Eastern Studies and am therefore well acquainted with the culture, history and current events of that region. I also obtained a minor in Physics during my time in college, and as a result, I am able to translate light texts dealing with scientific topics.
I am currently (February 16, 2011) located in Greece due to the recent political instability in Egypt. I plan to relocate to Cairo as soon as possible, which will likely be in two weeks. I will have internet access wherever I am located.
Thank you very much for your time and your consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you if you find that my services might be of use to you.
Sincerely,
Scott Cole
