I completed my graduation and masters in microbiology and right now I am working on my Ph.D. I started my professional life as a writer/translator in Bangladesh and worked on that field for more than five years. In this time I translated more than 25 books from English to Bengali. I also worked as an assistant editor and article writer in electronic media in the meantime. 

As a freelance translator, I got my primary expertise from my habit of reading. I have been an avid reader of the literature in both English and Bengali - which I believe has honed my skills in those languages. I feel that languages are one of my strong points and I was always apt at learning them quickly. I love to play with words and feel energized after reading something that excites and amazes the mind with verbosity and eloquence. 

I got the chance to start translating from English to Bengali after one of the reputed publishers in Bangladesh arranged a translation competition where I took part and won. I was selected to translate one of the brightest gems of world literature - "The Hobbit" in Bengali for them which paved the way for me to work more on this field. The books that I translated was received well by the publishers and the readers. 

In this time I also started working online for clients both at home and abroad, for whom I performed jobs like translation, transcription, transliteration, and editing. In my translation career, I have gathered experience by working on widespread topics like politics, administration, finances, medical science, biological science, commercial projects, arts, economics, law, agriculture, science and technology, development, nature, international organizations, sports, culture, and many others. 

I believe that being a translator is not about only making money, but helping people cross the language barrier across the world and conveying the messages from one language to another. This makes it one of the most revered and important jobs to me which I have taken as my passion. Each project that I successfully complete makes me strive for further quality in my work. I always try to prioritize the demands of my clients above everything and make sure that they get everything that they asked with the highest amount of reliability, quality in the least amount of time. 

My payment for different projects vary accordingly, and often times, based on the nature, volume, and urgency of the project, I adjust it after negotiation.
