Translation from English into Arabic and vice versa. 


Thanks for visiting my page!

If you are a humanities publisher, a marketing company, a production outlet, a legal institution, a university, etc. and you want your documents professionally translated into Arabic, you are encouraged to email me with a sample text to review. I am honest enough to decline any assignment that falls beyond my capabilities. You are in safe and caring hands! I am fine with an array of subjects: business, marketing, legal, technical, humanities, media, educational, religious, etc. I have done translation assignments to major institutions in the Middle East, the Gulf countries, Europe, and USA, including UN bodies and world-ranking universities. I am a published translator! Arabic is my mother tongue (I have translated classical, modern standard, and colloquial Arabic into English). I am proficient in English and am learning German and Persian.

NB. I prefer to translate from scratch rather than proofread a mediocre translation. For me, a mediocre translation is that which sacrifices content to form and vice versa. In other words, the target text could be well written but the meaning is screwed up. I call it "perfect mistranslation." Some would probably mistake it for "creativity." Creativity, I maintain, equals precision that follows from an adept understanding of textual nuances and competence to render them in a suitable register. Perfect command of the target language and appreciation of its literary genera help to translate creatively. If a text "turns you inside out," you feel it, you taste it. With the required linguistic, literary, and professional expertise, you are qualified to get the most out of the text, to do it as it should be done, not as you might like to do it. Remember to be objective rather than subjective. Alternatively, the target text could be carelessly written, but the meaning is conveyed well. Such a sloppy text ignores proper punctuation, spelling, and/or grammar. It looks out of place in one way or another. While the first problem arises from a deficient interpretative process, the other is caused by limited awareness of linguistic conventions. I do my best to save your target texts from both defects.
