Before moving to the UK, I was certified to guide in English across Turkey, by the Turkish Ministry of Culture & Tourism. This paved the way for me to interpret to many international business people coming to do business in Turkey. After moving to the UK in 2003, I have entered exams in 2005 and obtained the Certificate of Translation and Diploma in Public Service Interpreting.
