Bio
Thanks for visiting and welcome to my profile page!

I believe that: Hi quality, tight time and low rate are an impossible
trinity to find!

 

Talking about every single job
I have taken through the variant positions I have occupied in different fields
of translation in 3 countries (Sudan, KSA & Egypt) could, I think, be boring
thing rather than interesting!

In translating, I work on three baselines as follows:
The first is
the conception that the ideal translation is a
delicate balance between the literality and the intended meaning
.  Since
the honest translation invites the literality, on one hand, while the purpose
invites the intended meaning, on the other hand so that the pure literality does
not yield fully understood translation, nor complete reliance on the mere
intended meaning yields accurate translation.

The second baseline is
that the words reflect speaker's personality and the soundness of the subject or
the point they may be expressing, and inaccurate translation would misrepresent
either or both of the aspects.  That is why I
bent on the highest possible level of accurate translation - at my time's
expense, not my reputation
.

The third is that I apply a
translation technique that ensures proofreading
my translation as much as three times during three phases of translating
process
.  This makes my translation almost 100 % perfect, and eliminates the need to get
it proofread by someone else, meaning less
charge and shorter time for my client at the expense of my own time
.  I
express that in a single sentence as: First-time safe crossing to the other
language.

Visiting 17 countries for
tourism, work or study
(Sudan, KSA, UAE, Syria, Morocco, England,
Holland, Spain, ex-Yugoslavia, Greece, Cyprus, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia,
Singapore, Thailand & Philippines) has earned me a precious special knowledge that boosts the quality of
my professional performance in translation and refines my innate linguistic
endowment
.

Embarking on TranslatorsCafe, I have quitted Proz.com
- for being dissatisfied of their policy - leaving (150+) project portfolio,
(42) positive feedback, and a high visitors rate from (92) countries across the
World during just six years of participation, as well as more than (30
thousands) words for "Translators Without Borders":
https://www.translatorscafe.com/cafe/member365999.htm
That
is because I have an accumulation of
capabilities and skills
in the open space of life.  So, let the first
translation service tells you more about the quality of my performance in
translation, assuring you that it will bring you
- God willing - sought satisfaction
.
Also, my following website:
www.arabic-not-indian-numbers.com

which
I created writing-, developing- and
translating-wise myself in both languages Arabic and English
, would prove
you much, or please visit my translation personal website:
