Hi! I’m Muhammad Said. I’m here to show you through my own expertise how to start a successful career in translation & localization.


Driven by my sincere passion to help others, with more than eleven years of hands-on experience in the translation industry, and my bird’s eye view of the localization industry locally and globally, this academy is intended to be your roadmap to stand out from the crowd in such a very competitive market, the localization market.

My name is Muhammad Said, a dad of a little prince and princess, and I have been working as an English / Arabic translator for more than ten years. I am also a ProZ.com certified translator and a member of the ProZ PRO Network.

The main content in my website will be the podcast, where I will give orientation recordings over many disciplines in the translation & localization market, so saying ‘hasta la vista, translation scammers!” will be much easier with me. Read more…

Director of Business Development – Social and Public Sectors at GeoPoll

Muhammad Said was one of the most professional team members with whom I have had the pleasure to work with during my short visit to Egypt in May 2014. Not only did he possesses the desired language skills that were required, but he took additional time to prepare for the specific project mission by becoming very adept at the terms and constructs we faced on each election day. He had a positive attitude, professional demeanor, and kept the discussions positive and lively.

Muhammad provided exemplary assistance in his role as a translator to us on the 2014 Presidential Election Observation Mission. He had an excellent command of the technical vocabulary pertinent to this mission that allowed us to carry out our duties in talking to judges at polling stations. Muhammad always acted professional in precisely translating our conversations with others and made it seem as though we were truly just carrying on a regular conversation with the judge. Highly recommend.




– Ahmed El Miligy

Director of Operations WGE Language Consultancy

Muhammad Said is a unique professional. He always works to develop himself and help others be developed. I worked with Muhammad on many large and complex projects and he was always keen to deliver a perfect translation work. I recommend Muhammad faithfully.





– Dr. Nahla Abul-Izz

– Lecturer at Helwan University, Translation & Linguistics

“The Internet Searching Skills for Translators” lecture was indeed very rich, illuminating, and informative. Thanks to the pertinent, well-prepared, sincerely composed lecture, as well as to Mr. Muhammad Said’s clear and delightful lecturing, I really believe that I’m now empowered by the basic internet search skills I need as a translator.
