I was responsible for the translation and subtitling of market research studies, focus groups, interviews and other papers. And I  worked with PF Protector as a full-time Arabic Translator. My duty was to translate the daily news and provide daily and weekly reports. Then, starting from 2012 I became a 100% freelance Arabic Translator. Thus, I had the chance to provide my English, French and Arabic translation services to a number of translation companies as well as direct clients.
