About me
I specialise in providing a rapid turnaround translation service of the highest quality, working in a number of fields in which I have obtained in-depth practical experience: most particularly international affairs, journalism and NGOs.

I am a British English native speaker, and qualified with a first class degree (with distinction) in Arabic/Farsi from the University of Cambridge. I also have an MA in international affairs, with specialism in conflict and security, from Sciences Po (Paris, studied in French).

Working in NGOs, journalism, and diplomacy in the Middle East, Iran and Afghanistan has enabled me to enhance my language skills, and to offer translations which are culturally sensitive and can be relied upon in demanding circumstances.

I also enjoy literary translation, and completed a course in Cairo with the British Council in this field.

I ensure that I am available to clients during and following delivery of work in order to respond quickly and effectively to follow-up questions.

I am a reliable and friendly interlocutor, and aim to respond promptly to any enquiries. Please contact me regarding availability, and to request a CV.
