Hi, I’m Eda, a ProZ.com Certified PRO.                                                                        

 

Combining my love for languages and the arts, I specialize in subtitling for independent films but above all value working on projects I find meaningfulThe works I’ve translated thus far explore a variety of socially relevant themes such as LGBTQI+ culture, gender representation in film and the sociology of assimilation.

 

I offer my services to anyone who believes they can benefit from my expertise in subtitling, my proficiency in translation and transcription and my knowledge in the areas of film, art and academics. I’m open to projects with subject matters outside of my fields of familiarity and welcome opportunities in copywriting, transcreation, MT post-editing and voice-over work as well.

My background


I attended an international high school where I pursued a writing-intensive, bilingual curriculum for my International Baccalaureate (IB) program. Upon receiving my diploma, I enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences program at NYU, spending my first year at the school’s Florence campus in Italy before relocating to New York City.

 

Getting my career start as a tour guide at an art biennialI went on to work as a coordinator for various international film festivals in Turkey for three years. I especially enjoyed working for one of the leading independent film festivals, !f Istanbulwhere I became immersed in independent film culture. As I worked closely with that festival’s subtitling coordinator, I became interested in translation work and decided to transition into that field.



Thank you for visiting my profile and I look forward to our collaboration.
