I have started my translation and voice over career in 2009. I have a very good and varied experience in translating different genres, including songs and Voice Over scripts such as ads, tourist audio-guides, IVRs, children stories/dictionaries, documentaries and scripts timed to videos. I have particular interest in Subtitling, and during my studies towards MA in Screen Translation at the University of Sheffield, I have gained very good experience working on various subtitling projects including The Simpsons, which was very interesting and challenging due to the nature of the text, and had very successful results. For my dissertation, I chose to compare the subtitled version of Shrek 2 to the dubbed one, which was a very enjoyable and extremely useful experience. I have used SWIFT and Wincaps subtitling software. I have also completed many Voice Over projects performing in Arabic and English. Some of my clients include: Blok Media, London, UK Daman Health Insurance, UAE DartMedia, Kuwait Exposure Television Limited, England, UK The Kreative Company, UAE Voices On Call, USA FlyingWord, USA Translation samples can be provided upon request. I’ll be happy to take any translation test for my abilities if required.
