Bio

An aspiring person who is always on the hunt for what is innovative and interesting.

I am currently
pursuing my PhD studies in the fields of Criticism and Drama. I had obtained my
BA in English Language and
Literature
in 2014 and obtained my MA in Literary Studies in 2018. My
studies have always dealt with language matters and their peculiar aspects,
including the hard-to-pin issue of quality.

I was hired as
the
Levantine Arabic LL with TWB late November 2018. This has given me the chance to
become familiar with how TWB works, especially when it comes to remote-based
work, tools and platforms. As an LL, I came into contact with quality issues as
well as volunteer community engagement quite often.

I first learned
about TWB in 2017 and started
volunteering that year with the RR Team that translated urgent content during
the refugee crisis on a daily basis. I decided to join as a volunteer because I
felt I had a responsibility towards helping the refugees facing various perils
on their way to the unknown. I also contributed over
400,000 words on the
Workspace and Kató Platform, while also screening new volunteers.

As a university lecturer, I taught
Academic Writing courses to freshmen and sophomores. I had to always keep an
eye on details while handling the large volume of written material. I also
prepare exam questions for the courses and mark papers.

I started
working as a
translator in 2013. As my experience with translation grew, so did my digital skills in tackling
challenges and problem-solving. My fascination with IT helped me as I was
always happy to learn how to use new tools. This ultimately culminated in learning
how to do manual OCR, using formatting tools, translation memory tools,
subtitling tools, python tools and even some graphic design tools.

I believe that
the combination of my experience, skill, and enthusiasm will be the assets I
can rely on.
