My Background

I graduated from the graphic design and multimedia program department of LP3I (Indonesian Institute of Education and Profession Development) college in 2008. I believe that my experience and education background in computation fields will positively contribute to the products I offer in the translation industry. 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.

Language Pair, Domains, Availability, and Rates

For now, the language pair I can handle is English to Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) while the fields of expertise of mine are general business text, technical (industrial machinery) translation, and IT-related material including UI translation, game localization, web localization, mobile apps localization, and DTP.

I am available from Monday to Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm (GMT +7). But I am a very flexible translator which is also available during the weekend and national holiday (except in some religious festive).

For the rate, I am sure that there are literally dozens of factors that affect translation rates and I’m afraid there is no such thing as a “one-fits-all” translation rate. But, whenever you have projects big or small with limited or unlimited budgets and need to hire a reliable translator, do not hesitate to contact me and let’s discuss the price. I accept payment (USD and EUR) both through PayPal and wire transfer.

My Projects

During my journey, I have done many translation projects and a few reviewing tasks. Here are the summaries:
