Professional objectives
  • Meet new translation company clients
  • Meet new end/direct clients
  • Screen new clients (risk management)
  • Network with other language professionals
  • Get help with terminology and resources
  • Learn more about translation / improve my skills
  • Get help on technical issues / improve my technical skills
  • Stay up to date on what is happening in the language industry
  • Help or teach others with what I have learned over the years

I have had a career of about 20 years in the financial services industry in Turkey, and I have been working as a freelance translator since 2016. 

I am working full time, meaning, I allocate 5-6 hours every day to business, either translating, or researching, or networking and marketing.

Finance and law are my two specialty areas. I translated a lot in these fields, and I promise to return an excellent output.

My expertise in translation of financial matters includes banking, capital markets, accounting, tax and insurance. 

My expertise in translation of legal matters includes contracts, court decisions, legal regulations, internal regulations of various entities, and corporate documents such as articles of association, signature circular, etc.

Both for legal and finance, please do not hesitate to ask for a quote if you have something in a special field not mentioned here. I will tell you what I can and cannot do.
