Translator, Transcriber, Data Entry Personnel

I am a multilingual translator. My default languages are Indonesian and English. I am experienced in handling translations from these languages: Latin, German, Dutch, Danish, and Indonesian. I aspire to add Norwegian into my work experience.
As a professional translator, I currently restrict myself to the following language pairs:
Indonesian to English,
English to Indonesian,
Latin to English,
English to Latin,
German to English,
Dutch to English,
Danish to English, and
Norwegian to English.
I have been seriously dealing with translation since 2011. I have long been amassing knowledge of linguistics in general and knowledge of particular languages using a sundry number of sources. This has equipped me with the skills and knowledge needed to study more than two languages relatively easily and to pursue a carrier path as a translator.
An autodidact at heart, I have used, and still am using, various resources to expand my knowledge of linguistics. Key among them are (for starters) Wikipedia, and (for more formal and advanced knowledge) MIT's free course material and research papers.
Besides translation I also take transcription, typing and data-entry tasks in English and Indonesian. I operate fairly well on Ms. Office Word 2007, Ms. Office Word 2010, and Ms. Office Excel 2010.
