Professional practices Aşkın SamurayBayraktaroğlu endorses's Professional Guidelines.
I have been working as a professional translator since sophomore class. After having graduated from Bilkent University's Translation and Interpretation Department in 2002, I worked in several sectors including media and advertisement, while also continuing my profession as a freelancer. For 4 years from early 2003 to 2007, I served as Foreign News and Health Page Editor in national newspaper Tercüman. In the meanwhile, for six issues I served as editor in chief for a monthly alternative health magazine called Bioenergy & Vitamins.

Also in 2003, I established my own publishing and music production company, Arkaplan, together with my childhood friends. With Arkaplan we produced several music albums and published more than 10 books. One of the books (ISBN No: 9756128046) was my own title, covering my criticisms -as a young foreign news editor- on the history of Turkish conservative movement.

In 2007, I decided to leave media sector and refocused on my original profession in linguistics. I started as Project Manager in Avrasya Translation, and after having gained some very valuable experience on clients, projects and translation tools I decided to continue as a full time freelance translator.

Since November 2008, I have been translating and localising a wide variety of contents from top global brands and organizations for reputable international clients from UK, US, Russia, China, Israel, Germany, South Korea, Hungary, and Singapore.

As an empathetic professional seeing things from both a project manager’s and a translator’s points of view, my essential principles are to reply all client emails within an hour from receipt, and to always offer the best results for optimum price as fast as possible.

My mission is to simply help people truly understand each other, and my vision is to expand my client base with more worldwide companies and build robust and long-lived professional relationships.
