am a translator (Arabic, English, and French), and a university instructor teaching English and
Translation courses (e.g., Translation Theories, Literary Translation, Legal Translation, Economic and Political
Translation, Audiovisual Translation, etc.). I am a native Arabic speaker, and I am fluent in both French and
English. I have a Master of Arts in Arts in Translation (thesis French to Arabic, graduated with honors), and over
twenty years of experience.
I have worked as a Translation Officer for intergovernmental organisations, such as the United Nations
Special Tribunal for Lebanon, which provided me with a wealth of knowledge and terminology to produce
accurate and timely translations under high pressure circumstances. My communication, multitasking, and
organizing skills have consistently allowed me to contribute to a constructive group environment, whereby I
have led teams, and complemented them under others’ supervision.
In addition, I have also carried out many independent translation projects in various domains,
including for instance, academic, legal, nonprofit, and entertainment-related translations (e.g., research reports,
magazine articles, short stories, etc.). Being well-versed in the field of translation and being resilient to stress, I
have the full ability to work autonomously when appropriate.
