Bio
I am an experienced Pashto, Urdu and Dari translator. I have worked with numerous translation agencies and organizations. Allow me to mention a few projects I have worked on. I started as a translator in 2009 with translation.pk for whom I translated a large amount of data for a machine language project besides several small and large documents. Last year I translated annual report and related documents of ISAAA , an organization that promotes biotech applications in agriculture. Last year I worked with Thesiegers, a research organization, as a translator of Afghan newspapers from the 1990s. I was interviewed and selected by the well-known Afghanistan expert Alex Strick Van Linschoten and later I also worked with Anand Gopal from the same team of researchers. I can provide references from both the distinguished scholars. At the moment I am working with Appen Butler Hill, an Australian company. I am part of their machine translation project where I am maintaining translation quality of over 90%. As part of the team, we have already done 350,000 words. At the moment I also work with the United Nations Higher Commissioner for Refugees, BOI Islamabad as a consecutive interpreter and translator. I am working with them on a consultant's contract. Along with commercial and development sector projects, I am a volunteer translator for Pashto Google Translate. I am a registered volunteer and commercial translator for Amara.org. I have translated several TedTalks and Scientific American magazine videos. I also contributed to Pashto translation of Facebook and Apache OpenOffice.
