Bio

Hello! I'm a freelance translator and proofreader with a background in newspaper journalism. During a decade working for newspapers, I developed excellent writing and editing skills, a broad base of knowledge, and top-notch research abilities. Now I combine these skills with my Arabic language ability to produce accurate, natural translations in a variety of fields: legal and judicial, business, government and politics, development, education, journalism and more.
