As someone with a diverse educational background and having worked in different areas, I have managed to employ my various skill and know-how to translation/editing/review processes. My bilingual education since elementary school, different areas (applied sciences, economics, marketing) of expertise and mostly my passion for anything related to technology has proven very useful, and humbly, distinguishing even. My journey through technology includes software development, hardware enthusiasm, testing bleeding edge features and of course a passion for gaming. Somewhat of a nerd, I live in a world of popular culture references, comic books, science trivia, political discussions, film festivals, progressive rock albums, movie marathons, getting the most of mobile phones, weekend trips for trekking, cycling and lots and lots of reading.

As a passionate linguist, I made my debut in the translation and localization world in 2014, when I was only a freshman in the university. I started as an intern and ended up to be freelance translator at SDL Turkey for 2 years. During this period of time, I gained immense amount of experience and I learned how to use multiple translation tools. Following that, I worked for a transcription company and made transcriptions of voice records both in English and Turkish. Finally, I started working with Localex in 2017 and that was one of the best decisions I made regarding my profession. During my time in SDL plc. and Localex I made translations, reviews and proof-reading in a wide variety of fields such as law, IT, marketing, legal, medical, gaming. During my time in the university, I took translation classes on many different fields and I also added knowledge of German and Spanish to my arsenal. Verified by Localex.
After working in different industries for over 10 years, I started working as a freelance translator four years ago. I'm currently a sworn translator with extensive experience in the translation of business/finance, legal, and academic documents including business procedures/processes/reports, agreements, research papers, website content, instruction manuals etc. in areas such as banking, oil/energy, construction/architecture, IT, etc.. My past work experience gives me a great advantage in clearly understanding the content and context of a material and then translating/interpreting it accurately and effectively, but I also always try to improve my skills further and keep myself up to date with the latest developments in my industry. So I'd be happy to work with you and deliver high-quality translations on time for you. Looking forward to hearing from you!
I have maintained my freelance translation career since 2000 and also worked for multinational companies (in tourism and FMCG industries) in different departments (such as admin, marketing, organization). This corporate experience has been important as it helped me gain experience in various fields. I have been working only as a freelance translator and interpreter since 2012. My areas of expertise mostly cover medical and technical domains, marketing and business world. I have taken part in large-scale localization projects.
I have been working as a professional translator since sophomore class. After having graduated from Bilkent University's Translation and Interpretation Department in 2002, I worked in several sectors including media and advertisement, while also continuing my profession as a freelancer. For 4 years from early 2003 to 2007, I served as Foreign News and Health Page Editor in national newspaper Tercüman. In the meanwhile, for six issues I served as editor in chief for a monthly alternative health magazine called Bioenergy & Vitamins.
Also in 2003, I established my own publishing and music production company, Arkaplan, together with my childhood friends. With Arkaplan we produced several music albums and published more than 10 books. One of the books (ISBN No: 9756128046) was my own title, covering my criticisms -as a young foreign news editor- on the history of Turkish conservative movement.
In 2007, I decided to leave media sector and refocused on my original profession in linguistics. I started as Project Manager in Avrasya Translation, and after having gained some very valuable experience on clients, projects and translation tools I decided to continue as a full time freelance translator.
Since November 2008, I have been offering highly appreciated translation and localization services to reputable international clients from UK, US, Russia, South Korea, Germany, Hungary, Singapore, and Turkey for brands and organizations including Google, Samsung, Apple, Covidien, Sony, Symantec, Electronic Arts, ABBYY Fine Reader, Kaspersky, HP, TicToc App, Haas, International Paper, Toro, LSI (Language Studies International), Esko, Xaar, Xerox, Marriott Hotels, Acıbadem Hospitals, Istanbul Chamber of Commerce, General Electronics, European Union, World Health Organization, Opel, Citroen, Subaru, GAP, H&M, Mango, Nike, etc.
As an empathetic professional seeing things from both a project manager’s and a translator’s points of view, my essential principles are to reply all client emails within an hour from receipt, and to always offer the best results for optimum price as fast as possible.
My mission is to simply help people truly understand each other, and my vision is to expand my client base with more worldwide companies and build robust and long-lived professional relationships.
I'm a freelance translator interested in localization and terminology management. I've taken part in game and other software localization projects before, and now I'm looking forward to working in many more.
