Bad interpretation or translation of content equals disaster. Moreover, not understanding how to phrase a question or how to decipher an answer can cause big issues in how parties communicate. That is where I come in.

These are some of the reasons why you should consider working with me for Arabic interpreting and translations.

I am able to help you get your message across THE FIRST TIME AROUND. It does not matter if it is a translation of a technical manual, deposition, court trial, conference, class or a speech….I can and will be your voice in Arabic. I can do it in almost real time or in a consecutive mode.

My interpreting has credibility and this is why...
  • I have been a native Arabic speaker for over 40 years with solid references.
  • I can interpret accurately with minimum delay to preserve the tone and register of what is said.
  • I have worked with criminal and civil defense attorneys and can provide long term as well as recent references.
  • Although I can interpret legal terms very well in court settings, I am also able to give you some examples of the type of work that I have and still do...

  • Interpreting technical content; like simultaneously interpreting a full lecture or conference on the use of the Cyclic and Collective helicopter controls, or the effects of deep sea diving on human physiology, oh and my favorite…conduct forensic physiological evaluations of federal inmates. I have and can interpret your real time lectures to military officers on the implementation of proper hostage negotiation techniques.

  • A “Professionally Qualified” Federal District Court interpreter, I am also an FAA Certified Helicopter and Airplane Pilot, Open Water SCUBA instructor, I program iPhone and iPad Xcode and I am also a Medic First Aid and AED Instructor.
  • I have conducted many classes myself as a teacher of Arabic to native English speakers. I am self motivated and can work without supervision.
  • I am a certified interpreter for the U.S. Department of State and a State registered Tier 1 Oregon Judicial department Arabic interpreter
