I have been working as a translator since 1999 when I was a student of English in the University of Basrah, Iraq. During that time, I translated tens of books and documents to students of history and economics. I continued to do translation work to afford for my study expenses and upon graduation I joined the MA studies to sharpen my linguistic skills and get deeper insights into the working of language and the stylistic features that renders it distinctive.

In 2003, I worked in the field of humanitarian assistance in the International Committee of the Red Cross. This job added a wider practical edge to my linguistic knowledge as I got involved in real time interpretations and translations. Upon finishing my MA studies, I started to teach in the Department of Translation in the University of Basrah. There, I taught Consecutive Interpretation, Technical Translation, Drama and Writing.

in 2007, I moved to Jordan to work as a translator and interpreter in Amman.There I have the opportunity to get into contact with a wider translators community and to work hard to hone my translation skills by doing translations to a number of UN agencies like FAO, UNDP, UNOPS and others as well as for individuals and companies.

To crown all, I translated the Annual Report of the Jordan Islamic Bank(140 pages) from Arabic into English and also did a translation of HC Armstrong's book "Lord of Arabia" that is going to be published by Dar AlWarraq in London.

In brief, following this long experience in the field of translation and interpretation, I have full confidence in my products and ability to master different types of texts in different fields of specialization.
