I have worked with clients in USA, UK, Ireland, Canada, Malaysia, India, and Germany besides my home country Pakistan. My clients have always been appreciative of my swiftness, quality, reliability and handling of high volume jobs.

Besides translation, I provide editing, proofreading, linguistic terminology building, culture guidance and research services.
