I am an experienced Urdu and Punjabi linguist specializing in a variety of linguistic services, including translation, editing/review, transcription, subtitling, foreign/second language test development, voice-over, and transcreation.

A brief detail of my education, skills, and experience:

• I am a native speaker of Urdu and Pakistani Punjabi and translate from and into both languages.
• I have over 8 years’ experience of providing translation, transcription, QA, review and other language-related services to clients based in various parts of the world, including the UK, the USA, Australia, Ireland, and Sweden. I always try to go the extra mile to bring the best to my clients – a quality which has made me a preferable choice for a number of translation companies, and the clientele is growing day by day. My present and recent clients include, inter alia, such leading companies as VistaTEC, SDL, Avant Assessment, Language Services Associates, and Appen Butler Hills. Moreover, I have had the opportunity of using a variety of industry-standard CAT and other tools such as Trados, Google Translation Toolkit, Across, Smartling, LocStudio, Microsoft LEAF, Audacity, and Express Scribe, and I can quickly learn and use new translation tools.
• I hold PhD Translation Studies, MPhil Linguistics, and MA English degrees.
• I worked as a lecturer in English at a public-sector university in Pakistan, where I taught a variety of language- and linguistics-related courses -- such as Communication Skills, Functional English, Sociolinguistics, Bilingualism, Stylistics, and Computer-Assisted Language Learning. This experience, as well as my academic training, have helped a lot in increasing my know-how of the graphological, morpho-syntactic, lexical/semantic, stylistic, and cultural specifics of English, Urdu, and Punjabi.

My personality traits include honesty, passion, industriousness, and the ability to learn new technologies.

With a strong knowledge base, experience, and skills, I am well-equipped to provide high-quality language services to any clients.
