I am a professional freelance translator in English - Turkish language pair specializing in law, contracts, information technologies and marketing. I am a proud member of American Translators Association since 2001, have Chartered Institute of Linguists’ Diploma in Translation (DipTrans IoLET) degree since May 2012 and as of November 2018, I am a Chartered Linguist and MCIL.

I have been collaborating with the finest translation agencies in Turkey and abroad (i.e. Tercumex Language Services, offices in Istanbul, Turkey and Kiev, Ukraine; Bel Translation, based in the US, The Spider House, Spain; Foreign Exchange, based in the US, with 6 offices worldwide) and my end clients include TURKAK (Turkish Accreditation Agency), TÜV-SUD Turkey, TÜV-SUD GmbH Germany, AMD, Turkcell (a major cellular phone network provider in Turkey), TUBITAK (Turkish Scientific and technologic Research Institute), Ministry of Industry and Commerce General Directorate of Standards and Measures, Enterasys and Fox International Channels (a complete reference list with contact information is available upon request).

I offer translation, localization and DTP services (InDesign / Quark included).

I have excellent command of Turkish. The translations I deliver read so naturally, often it is impossible to tell them apart from texts that were originally written in Turkish, which makes me a great asset, especially in terms of marketing and business texts. Also, I have been translating legal / law texts since the early 2000s. I have a distinction in DipTrans Law paper (in addition to a merit in semi-technical Business paper and a pass in General paper).
