    I started out my career providing Arabic subtitles to Masreya Media, a leading subtitling company in Egypt that provides services to international TV channels. I then started to provide translations to various companies as a freelancer. In 2008, I joined the outsourcing community as a translation provider and started to build my experience in website/application translation. In 2009, I took on a project with Rushglobe, Inc. to localize promotional material for a health product to be distributed in the Middle East, a project that was cancelled later on. Since 2010, I have been providing translation services to PrivateHealthcare UK, a leading medical travel information company in the United Kingdom. Even though my career revolves mainly around translation from English to Arabic, I am experienced and interested in writing English material from articles to web content, and from creative to technical. Specialties:I specialize in website and application translation through content management systems, as well as translating medical content and material. I also specialize in Arabic subtitling of films and TV shows, as well as in translating and writing material about food and cooking (recipes, tips, TV shows, etc.) As for writing, I am interested in writing about relationships, anthropology, biological anthropology, and other topics involving the human psyche.  less

    I am currently working as a freelance digital publisher, editor, translator and journalist, having spent seven years working in the media, both in the UK and Denmark. This has included time at international broadsheets, specialist magazines, local newspapers, and a popular website. I have developed, written and edited a wide portfolio of print and online stories, aimed at diverse audiences, which has involved working closely with editors and graphic designers on how best to present complex issues in exciting but straight-forward ways. As well as producing fast and dynamic news stories to strict deadlines, my current role also allows me the creative freedom to do photo-journalism, research and develop complex articles and create short video segments for websites. My interests are wide and varied; I am fascinated by finance, foreign affairs, science and the environment, sports, the internet and geek culture, and the relationship between politics, the media and peoples’ lives. I also love to travel. I would relish the opportunity to work in a position that would allow me to bring together my love of communicating ideas and experiences with my passions and interests. I am half Danish and half English, and fluent in both languages. In addition, I have a good understanding of several other European languages and cultures. I see my dual nationality as an advantage as it gives me a fresh perspective on English approaches to publishing and an insight into how best to engage and interact with non-English people, like the Scandinavian for example. I enjoy sharing ideas and working as part of a creative team but also have the confidence to tackle projects autonomously. I pride myself on my attention to detail, positive outlook, work-ethic, and an ability to perform well under pressure. I enjoy new challenges, learn quickly and would relish the opportunity to further develop my career with you.
