Hello! I'm a freelance translator and proofreader with a background in newspaper journalism. During a decade working for newspapers, I developed excellent writing and editing skills, a broad base of knowledge, and top-notch research abilities. Now I combine these skills with my Arabic language ability to produce accurate, natural translations in a variety of fields: legal and judicial, business, government and politics, development, education, journalism and more.

A short list of some of the work I've done in the past year:

Executive regulations for value added tax (Egypt)
Islamic banking and finance law (UAE)
Portions of Egyptian Civil Code
Portions of Libyan Civil Code
Petition to revoke child custody (Morocco)
Divorce action (Saudi Arabia)
Whatsapp chat transcripts
Lebanese birth certificate
Book excerpts on Libyan administrative jurisprudence
Governmental authority’s organizational outline (Kuwait)
Corporate articles of association
Lease agreement (Saudi Arabia)
Saudi Telecom bills
Criminal court rulings and investigative reports (Egypt)
Newspaper and journal articles
Application for an international scouting award (Libya)
Trademark laws and regulations from several countries
