Translation, Localization, and Subtitling

I have an excellent command of Turkish. The translations I deliver read so naturally; it is often impossible to tell them apart from texts originally written in Turkish. And that makes me a great asset, especially in marketing texts. Also, I have been translating legal / law texts since the early 2000s. I have a distinction in the DipTrans Law paper (in addition to a merit in the semi-technical Business paper and a pass in the General paper). As of May 2012, I have been a DipTrans IoLET (English – Turkish) and a Chartered Linguist (MCIL) since 2018.

I work in a team with fellow translators, and typically all my work is proofread by a second linguist. Therefore, by default, my rates for translation are inclusive of proofreading. So if you are an agency and have your own proofers or your particular assignment is “for information” and to be edited by you, I will gladly offer you a discount and skip proofing by a second linguist. However, please note that in such case, I will not be responsible for occasional –very occasional, typos that an ordinary spell-check can’t pick up. In addition, I have a British proofreader/editor (a native speaker of English). Consequently, I can also provide high-quality Turkish – English translations at no additional proofing charge to my clients.

I have been in business since 1997 (full-time since 2002). I’ll gladly cooperate with you if my rates and qualifications meet your expectations.

Please be sure to check my CV. And look at the translation samples section, where you’ll find samples of various translation, localisation and subtitling projects I have completed.

Haluk was responsive and professional. I used his service for a U.S. visa application. The documents were ready in 24 hours and shipping arrived the next day. Would definitely recommend using his services for Turkish translations.

Working with Haluk Aka Ltd was one of my smoothest transactions ever. I sent a PDF of my document that needed to be translated at 11pm and by 11:30am tomorrow I received it. This review wasn’t falsely made for the 20% off either, and if I ever need another document translated Haluk Aka Ltd is the place.

Ingiltere vatandaşlık islemlerimle ilgili internette çevirmen ararken Haluk Aka'nın tecrübeli bir Chartered Linguist oldugunu görünce diğer opsiyonları tercih etmeyip ona başvurdum. Gün icinde geç attığım ve acil olduğunu belirttiğim emaile hızlıca dönüp ertesi sabah 7 civarına mükemmel bir çeviri yetiştirdi ve aynı gün hızlı kargoya ıslak imzalı aslını da verdi. Herşey birkaç emaille hızlıca çözüldü. Gerçekten konusunda uzman ve işini titizlikle ve hızlı yapan biri, iletişim konusunda da çok profesyonel ve kibar bir insan. Kendisiyle gurur duydum, herkese öneririm. I was looking for a translator for my British citizenship application documents. I realised that Haluk Aka was an experienced Chartered Linguist therefore I have chosen him among other options. He quickly responded to my email that emphasised the urgency but sent very late. He sent me documents covering important information regarding his qualifications etc in addition to a perfect translation around 7am the next morning via email which was impressive. He also arranged the courier on the same day for next day delivery. Everything was conveniently and quickly completed via a few emails. He is an expert in his field, he does his job meticulously. He is also a very professional and polite person in terms of communication. I felt proud of him and I definitely recommend him.

Highly recommended; very responsive, quick process. Contacted to translate some documents from Turkish to English via email. Got a response for my email very quickly, then got a clear explanation for the process and timing. He provided translation on time. He is a ATA member, provides verified translation. Highly recommend this place.

Haluk Bey e çok sıkışık bir takvimle halletmem gereken bir tercüme için ulaştım. Öğleden sonra gönderdiğim dokümanı söz verdiği gibi ertesi gün mesai saati başlamadan tercüme edip gönderdi. Bu kadar kısa sürede beni çok ciddi bir sorundan kurtardığı için ne kadar teşekkür etsem azdır.
