About me
My name is Mehdi ADLANY, based in Casablanca, an English to French and Arabic translator with 2 years of experience and a milestone of 400,000 words translated as of November 2014. I work at News Group Maghreb as a translator and copywriter. I have translated dozens of pharmaceutical, IT and engineering (energy engineering, automotive and aircraft) patents. I am an MA holder, graduate of King Fahd of Translation in Tangiers, Morocco. From studying sciences at high school, a train of coincidences led me to pursue translation. My choice of language studies was mainly driven by a dream to become a writer. I have written dozens of short stories, poetry and ventured in starting two novels (which I didn’t finish). My penchant for curating content has been my asset in translating art-related documents with Arabian Wings, a Fine Arts Company. I combined science and art into the making of quality content. Why do I specialize in Technical Translation? In high school, before changing course to English Studies, I had a dream to become an engineer -an electrical engineer to be precise. When I started out, I didn't pursue that route. Among the first projects I worked on was a Porsche Cayenne crash report to be translated from English into Arabic. It was extremely challenging but an excellent reason to be interested in engineering again as I was curious to know about cars. Later, I was more exposed to technical documents during my work at a translation agency. In 2013, I was hired as a part-time teacher to teach English for Engineers at the Faculty of Sciences and Technology (FST Moahmemdia), which exposed me to Energy Engineering field. It was such a rewarding experience as it helped me tremendously in projects that I worked on between May and October 2014, and I and grew an instant interest in energy engineering field. Consequently, I have invested a lot of time to build my own Energy Engineering Glossary to focus on more projects in this field.
