Hussein Nassouri

Freelance Translator & Proofreader

Summary

I'm a translator and proofreader with almost 10 years of experience of working with international and regional clients across different sectors, including the broadcast, media, public relations, medical and IT industries, to name a few. Coming from a literary and artistic background, I've always believed that effective translation is less about rigid structure and literal rendering, and more about the organic flow of words, conveying a desired message in the unique syntax and cadence of the chosen language. This brand of translation ensures that the translated text preserves the essence of the original material in terms of meaning and feel, while being linguistically sound and easy to understand.

I consider translation as part of my creative endeavors as a prognostic writer, improvising painter and wood sculptor. Not only am I passionate about it, but I also happen to be speedy, punctual and focused on the quality of my deliverables.
