Yasmin holds a BA in English as well as a post-graduate diploma in translation; she also has two certificates in localisation engineering. Since 2002, she has been working as an in-house and freelance translator and localiser. Although she distinguished herself by her literary style in writing and translation, she showed a great interest in localisation and translation technology; thus, she enhanced this interest through academic study and hands-on experience. Currently, she also conducts research in machine translation.
Skilled in diverse Computer-Aided Translation (CAT) tools, she is giving CAT courses on a regular basis, in cooperation with the Translator Training Centre at ATIDA and other institutes. From 2009 to 2015, Yasmin worked on the Wordfast Technical Support Team, dedicating much of her time and effort to Wordfast Pro.
