Description

I have been working as a freelance translator, interpreter, editor and proofreader for 17 years and hold a BA in the field of Translation and Interpreting from Bogazici University of Turkey. I believe that accuracy, fluency and punctuality are the three main elements of a high quality translation service. While translating, I view each word as a micro-cosmos consisting of so many semantic features and consider my job to discover the dynamic relations of words with each other and re-create that relationship in a completely different language.In addition to my BA in Translation & Interpreting, I have an MBA from Istanbul Technical University which enables me with in-depth understanding of business, finance and marketing related matters. Right after my undergraduate studies, I had the privilege of being employed by McDonald’s Turkey as an in-house translator and interpreter assisting the expatriate directors for two years. This employment opportunity equipped me with an understanding of American way of doing business as well as with a vast spectrum of business terminology from Finance to HR and everything in between. In addition to many business related translations, I interpreted in diplomatic and political events such as the negotiations between the Turkish Prime Ministry and the World Bank. I also worked in the field of marketing communications for two years after completing my MBA in English. Recently I had the honor of translating a historical book in the field of Ottoman Numismatics. I can comfortably translate from Turkish into English as well. To have an idea about my writing skills in English, you are welcome to visit my blog at www.EarthisHome.net. Currently I reside in NJ, USA.
