About me
SHORT BIO:

Having worked at both Turkish- and English-language publications for over nearly two decades as a senior journalist, translator, content- and SEO-writer as well as proofreader and lead-editor while also spending a total of ten years in managing positions, I have nourished my translation, proofreading, and news-writing, editing as well as content- and SEO-writing skills both in Turkish and English to the advanced level.

Turkish, my mother tongue, is the language I learned at birth and my language skills for Turkish and English have been elevated to a perfect degree during my professional past as well as my ongoing higher academic education.

As a professional translator and journalist, I am also familiar with producing contents based on the criteria the client asked for and also on my own expertise featuring a solid linguistic and technical background for search engine optimization as well as localization of marketing materials, web content & descriptions manuals, video and mobile games, app and software content/descriptions, as well as political, regional and diplomatic reporting and feature writing etc.

Having demonstrated outstanding communication skills at the busy working environment, I have also gained the ability to meet critical deadlines while still being adaptable, flexible and reliable. My understanding of professionalism requires me to possess abilities to give prompt replies meeting the needs of the prospective client as well as to be available at any time both during the day and the week.
