It is safe to say that I am extremely proud of Tarjama’s team. The technologies we use at Tarjama has helped me personally and professionally.
Last year, while everybody struggled to find ways to continue working, we at Tarjama moved easily from working in the office daily to a work-from-home setup. Our working model adopts technology which we utilize to facilitate communication and streamline our work. Depending on technology in all aspects of our work has helped me in keep a lifelong learning mindset and grow my skills.” – Raja’a, Head of QA

“I would say to working women around the world: no matter how difficult life has been, never stop learning; always seek to work in an environment that enables you to have a balance between your personal aspirations, your passion, and your work ambition.” – Raja’a, Head of QA
“I believe women should empower each other, each from her own place. We are all truly much stronger than what some in our society think. My message to them is to always do their best, seek better opportunities and never feel underestimated by anyone. You should be sure that you are extraordinary, and the world needs you and your efforts.” – Nouran, QA Engineer
“My message would be to believe in themselves and do what they’re passionate about. It is vital to love what you do, so pick something that makes you come back every morning with a smile on your face and a belief in your heart that you matter and are contributing to the world and setting an example to other women. Nothing beats the feeling that your life is filled with limitless opportunities to grow, prosper and do what you love!” – Eman, Senior Translator & Editor
