Loves driving

History fanatic

Hates hot weather

Akif studied foreign language in high-school and continued exploring this passion in college, graduating with a degree in English translation and interpretation from Istanbul University. Akif started his career as an intern and then a project manager at a translation agency in Istanbul, Turkey, where he realized how much he enjoyed being in a position that demands organization and cross-cultural communication skills. From there, he moved on to become the first remote employee of Multilingual Connections!

Akif finds joy in keeping his word: in a deadline-driven and quality-focused work environment, every single project that is delivered on time, within budget, and at the quality level required motivates him even more.

In his spare time he likes to work out, watch documentaries, and dream about being a racecar driver.
