My work as a translator is divided into two parts: the first involves translating from English to Arabic and vice versa; the second part encompasses proofreading and QA review. I’ve translated financial reports as well as documents and brochures on hospitality, tourism, media, journalism, business, politics, and social studies.

I think the most interesting part of my job is when I bridge two different languages to create a unified, meaningful text. In a way, this process of re-writing content channels my passion for writing.

Team work is the key to the success in any project. Working within my team members has given me more trust and confidence in my work, allowing us to produce more effective, and creative results.
