Professional Background

I have been working as a translator since 2009. I have translated literary, academic, marketing, and business texts from English/French/Spanish to Turkish. I was a resident translator at Centre National du Livre (Paris) in July 2015. Please see the list of the titles I translated from English, French, and Spanish to Turkish.

I worked as a fiction agent at an Istanbul based literary agency from 2013 to 2015, where one of my tasks was writing sales pitches for fiction titles by localizing the content provided by foreign publishers and literary agents.

I have also been an ESL teacher since 2013. I have tutored many Turkish students for language exams such as TOEFL, IELTS, and GRE; taught high school students from basic to advanced English both in Turkey and abroad.
