He is a native Turkish speaker living in Istanbul and has undertaken numerous translation jobs and projects since 1985.
Despite having studied electronical engineering, he chose to work in the field of translation, content creation and management. For many years he worked as an editor-in-chief in end-user computer magazines like PC World Turkey and PC Magazine Turkey as well as the online computer publication ZDNet Turkey. Apart from full-time jobs like these mainly related to content management and many part time translation projects in these years, he has 10 years of full time experience as a translator.
By virtue of his hands-on experience in various fields, he is able to offer services like content translation, creation and management for Internet portals and all other electronic platforms.
He offers services in the fields of translation, proofreading, editing, subtitle translation and content management. He also provides DTP support in close collaboration with a partner specializing in this field.
He is experienced in translating in fixed space constraints and meeting strict deadlines. He is also familiar with both British English and American English idioms and slang.
He translates from Turkish into English as well as from English into Turkish. As a native Turkish speaker who lived in the UK as a child and learned English there, in later years he found much opportunity to read, listen to and write English. But since he has been living in Turkey for many years, he undertakes translations from Turkish to English in only fields that he knows very well and which doesn't require complete mastery over daily English (he doesn't translate marketing documents or advertising copy to English for instance). Additionally, he has his translations into English proofread by a native speaker, especially if time is short.
He loves translation and paying attention to details and cultural nuances.
