Native English speaker and Turkish language expert

I am a qualified professional in the field of translation from Turkish into my native language of English. I am a British national and since 2004 have served global language markets from my base in Limassol, in the south of Cyprus. My experience in the translation business stretches back to 1996.

In line with widely accepted practice, I only undertake translation work into my native language of English. My main specialisation is in legal translation, but I am also comfortable with most types of financial texts. I am always happy to consider assignments of a general nature. I NEVER subcontract work assigned to me.
