Bio

I'm a polyglot and a language expert, mainly specialized in the translation of educational content and linguistic-related subjects, humanities, geography and zoology, and gaming content; and I also work with economic translation.

I'm a potentially overzealous (in a good way) proofreader.

I'm an avid researcher, reader and an autodidact of languages, language history and linguistics; also, I'm a cunning internet user and researcher, and a former gaming nerd.

Academically majored in Spanish translation, I'm a smoothly fluent English speaker with a comprehensive and a broad comprehension of English, a native speaker of Egyptian Arabic (and I also speak and think in Modern Standard Arabic spontaneously and write with Arabic diacritics if needed), and, last but not the least, a Spanish to Arabic/English translator, especially familiar with European Spanish.

I possess some knowledge of other languages but I do not work with them professionally. However, I'm familiar with the following writing systems: Arabic abjad, Latin alphabet, Cyrillic (of most of Slavic languages written in Cyrillic), Modern Greek and Coptic (Modern Bohairic and Sahidic).

I take a relatively long time translating, because I have to make sure that every and each letter I write couldn't come off better.

Anecdotal notes about my English: My knowledge on English does not stop at the mere professional knowledge based on which one would translate from a language, but it's rather a deeper knowledge into the realm of its linguistics.

On my second academic year I joined a local group for freelance translators on Facebook, and before I'd have stopped considering myself a new member anymore, I was already pointing out some linguistic mistakes for elder translators who had books in translation in the local market. Since then I knew that I have the natural potential to be one of the best within my scope of work. Would you give me the chance to prove it?
