Translation and Interpreting
I understand the importance of communication and its immediacy and accuracy. I am here to help you grow your business in the Arab world by speaking directly to your target markets in their language.
What does Meraki mean?
Meraki is a Greek word. It means to do something with passion, absolute devotion and undivided attention. It is a labour of love: to leave a little something of yourself in everything you do. When people see your work, they see a piece of art and a true reflection of your soul.
At Meraki Language Services, I devote time, effort and all my senses to the task at hand. I make sure the results I deliver answer your professional needs. Whether it is general or specialized translation, interpreting, or proofreading, I research thoroughly before embarking on your project and make sure your text reads smoothly and seamlessly in the target language.
In your workshops, conferences or any kind of business meetings, I ensure effective communication between all attendees.
