  • Help or teach others with what I have learned over the years

I like to read and write, both in my native language Turkish, and in my "not that foreign" language English. I think that if a person likes to read and write in at least two languages, and if he/she is proficient at some degree in these two languages, then he/she is a natural translator.

I have had a career of about 20 years in financial services industry in Turkey. I have practiced translation and interpretation from time to time during this period and since 2014, I have adopted translation as my new profession.

The following bits of information might help to get a better idea of myself:

Like every translator, I have a few specialty areas, where I will always deliver great output: Financial services, law, and human resources, to name a few. But other than these, I have translation experience and interest in many other areas as well. So please do not hesitate to ask. I know when to say "I can't", both in terms of deadlines and in terms of content.

I work effectively from operational aspects. I always plan ahead, estimate the workload well, and always stick to the deadlines.

And finally, I do not deal with anything else as business, and I am allocating 6-7 hours of every work day to translation. Meaning, chances that an employer/outsourcer will find me again here at Proz, are very high.
