    translation from english to arabic or from arabic to english

    Egypt - Last active: 5 days ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 2

    I'm fluent in both Arabic and English since I'm a native Arabic speaker and I've been studying in English for more than 15 years. Translation is not only my job, it is my hobby as well. I love re-writing any English article in Arabic. The biggest challenge a translator may face is to keep the article's style so that no one can identify the original article from the translated one, and I'm up to this challenge. Doing my best to keep you on top is my life's work.
