Bio
Proficient translator in languages of Farsi and Arabic <>English.
Persian being my first native language but I have also completed 12 years of schooling in Arabic language, mastering Arabic language grammar, reading and conversation in several dialects. I'm familiar with most of Arabian customs, cultural and religious traditions, and their variances from one region/dialect to another.

I have four years of higher education as medical student and though, due to unstable political situation in the country I was not able to graduate, but did walk away with a wealth of medical knowledge no less than a freshly graduated doctor as a general practitioner.

As for my native language Farsi, I have well rooted knowledge of this language which is highly enhanced and re-enforced by my knowledge of Arabic language. Today's Farsi in general but its written spoken form of it in particular, comprised of no less than 50% Arabic words. This fact gives me a significant level of advantage over majority of Farsi translators. When it comes to any translation job in Farsi <> English pair I have great confidence in knowing how a word or phrase ought to be translated if I were to achieve the most accurate translation. This phenomenon is further re-enforced by my level of expertise in English language because it's like my second native language!
