Translation, Transcription, Photo-Editing&Restoration (LongExperience)

United Kingdom - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 5

Hello there! Thank you for your interest in viewing my profile. Let me first summarise my skills in bullet points, and I shall elaborate afterwards: Translation: ************* - Any written material from English to Arabic and vice versa. Transcription: *************** - Arabic and English transcription - All transcriptions are professionally time-stamped - Transcriptions can be translated if required Digital Photo-Editing: *********************** - Photo-restoration: to remove scratches, dust, noise and other blemishes in old photographs. - Photo-enhancement: to improve image quality by enhancing sharpness, contrast and colours. - Photo-colouring: to freshen old B&W images with colours. - Photo-manipulation: all sorts of editing can be done; objects, figures, backgrounds and/or writings can all be added to (or removed from) digital pictures, while keeping them look 'natural' to the eye. Research: *********** - I know how to 'dig' into the World Wide Web to extract any type of information needed. - Highly efficient, in-depth and fast online scanning for anything from simple searches up to dedicated academic scholarly, peer-reviewed, papers. ================== Now let me elaborate: I am an academic researcher. I started my postgraduate studies since 2002. I am a scholar in the UK since 2008. I successfully obtained two MA degrees, and I am currently doing PhD research at a reputable UK university. Alongside with my previous MA dissertations and my current PhD thesis, I have also written numerous academic papers in both Arabic (my native language) and English. My academic journey involved numerous translations from English to Arabic and vice versa, of course, along with writing and editing in both languages. This extended experience provided me with the ability to manage high quality, in-depth, research using various and numerous online and offline research tools. This includes excellent knowledge in referencing and word processing using various software including Mendeley, Endnote, Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat and more. I also have experience in transcribing any voice source from English to Arabic or vice versa. One of my transcribed videos has been previously broadcast on a well known TV channel in Egypt. ------------ Note: It is important to point out that I comply with my own strict policy with regard to data protection. I very well know that the documents - required to be translated - can bear sensitive or copyrighted information. Rest assured that any such information, your documents may bear, shall be strictly secured and shall never be shared with a third party, unless a clear consent and instruction given by you. ------------ Digital photo-editing, manipulation, retouching, restoration, etc., is another WORLD of fun to me. I have an extreme fondness of 'playing' digitally with pictures. I mostly work with Adobe Photoshop and I have more than 10 years of experience with this software. I can do virtually ANYTHING possible with digital images; from the simple background cleaning up to total photo-manipulation. I also use digital software to create drawings, sketches and caricature (please have a look at my portfolios) Dear client.. you've come to the right freelancer for your job! Thank you again for being interested to look at my oDesk profile.
