Who am I?
My name is Khadis, from Purbalingga, Central Java, Indonesia. I have been a freelance translator since 2012. Previously, I did a number of voluntary translation jobs, mainly movie scripts (for subtitle) for CLC (Cinema Lovers Community), a local independent filmmakers community from Purbalingga.
I graduated from the graphic design and multimedia program department of LP3I (Indonesian Institute of Education and Profession Development) college in 2008. My passion for English and computer landed me a contributor post for several computer magazines and also local newspapers. This opened some other doors previously not known to me. First, a friend of mine, who is already a translator was interested in involving me in his project. It was a tiny project and then it grew bigger and bigger. The projects vary from game testing to engineering, from general to technical and legal texts. Now, that I have gained some relevant experiences, I dare myself to take this business more seriously. I started to learn online and offline platforms to get more exposed to working opportunities out there. I do paid projects regularly now. But, whenever I am not doing a paid project, I will revert to voluntary translation works, for charity causes, mostly, and write for my own blogs.
I believe that my experience and education background in computation fields will positively contribute to the products I offer in the new industry I am about to enter: translation. I am an active learner, have a ‘can-do’ attitude, and unquenchable thirst for knowledge and information, among the other aspects that the translation industry demands.
What is ActiveTranslation?
ActiveTranslation is my personal branding—not an agency—that mainly provides English to Indonesian translation and localization services on general business texts and any IT-related materials (computer software, internet, desktop publishing, etc.) including UI translation, web localization, and game translation.
