Service Description

I have been a translator/interpreter for nearly ten years, full-time, part-time and freelance. I dealt with news (hard news and soft news), art exhibition curatorial, advertising materials, letters, business, economy (oil and gas, telecommunication, banking), short story, poetry and novel.

I am a native speaker of Bahasa Indonesia, have excellent command in English. I speak a little French and Hindi. I love language and am still amazed by its power. Though there are other forms of art, which I also love, language is the one that is closest to me.

I am also interested in Translation Studies. Translation is embedded with political, social and cultural values. Translation cannot be neutral, it says something about the translator's views. And it's interesting to see differences of style in the target texts!

I am currently a freelance copywriter/proofreader for a UK-based TAG - World Writers and Hogarth Worldwide. I also translate news articles for Indonesia's TEMPO weekly magazine English edition. Other translation works are on a project basis.

I also use CAT tool SDL Trados Studio 2011 Freelance.
