    EN-ID Translator/Editor, L10N Specialist, Researcher

    Indonesia - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    Good morning/afternoon/evening, everyone :) How do you want to get your message across? I would love to utilize my English and Indonesian skills to help you on your projects, whether it's translating, editing, and/or proofreading your books, articles, websites, mobile applications, and many more. I have been a translator for more than 13 years and editor for slightly less than that. What I enjoy about translating is the opportunity to bridge communication gap in a creative way. While I also have experience in writing, I find that I'm most productive in translation and editing role. I would say I'm consistently growing and taking the time to continue learning even though it’s not a direct requirement of the job. I find that many times, my professional growth is based on what I stumble upon at work, both directly and indirectly. It's every freelancer's dream to have successful engagements with clients, and with every partnership, I intend to show you fruitful results if you take a chance on me. Cheers, Dinna
