Dear Sir/ Madam,
My name is Sonia Soltani and I am a Canadian-Iranian residing in Turkey temporarily. I have been working as a freelance translator and proofreader for last five years of my life. I specialize in Legal and Financial fields. I also offer my services in Medical or educational fields.
I have worked in financial and legal organizations as a translator and an interpreter both before and after my post secondary education. I have lived in Canada since I was 13 and I have finished my post secondary education in Canada as well. I have done part of my schooling in Iran therefore, both English and Persian could be considered as my native languages. My mother tongue is Turkish.
I work in Persian -English, Turkish- English and Turkish- Persian pairs.
I believe in order to submit a job which is understandable by natives of a language, a translator not only needs to know the source and target languages but she/ he also needs to know the culture of the native people and I believe my experiences with all three of these languages will be a great resource for your company because I can provide you a culturally sound and correct job.
