Professional practices Ammar Mahmood endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Since my first experience with English at primary school, I found a strong desire in me to master this language. I finished my preparatory school with a final average that qualified me to go into the College of Engineering and the College of Sciences. But when I knew that we have a Department for Translation in my hometown Mosul, I made up my mind to choose this department convinced that it will help me develop my English and also be a translator.

I enjoyed every moment of my existence at this department and graduated as the second among 64 graduates, only 0.5 less than the first. I pursued my studies for the M A and majored in legal translation to finish the first among 12 postgraduates.

Now, I am working as a translator at the Deputy Minister's Office at the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. I am responsible for all the correspondence written in English coming in and out of the Office. I also edit and translate formal letters in English and Arabic related to the activities of our Office.

I adore my job and I always look for ways to improve it and help others improve theirs and provide the advice on the best ways to develop their skills in using English.
