About me
Experienced Translator and Interpreter
with a strong background in IT and specializes in, i.a., legal, business, cinema, defense, music, social studies, sports.

Confidentiality, Quality, Punctuality
are the principles on which I build my reputation.

I am a translator by profession, not by education.  I have a bachelor's degree in Computer Science (2000) and a master's degree in Information Systems (2004) from American University and Strayer University respectively, both of which are in Washington, DC.  Despite my (semi-)technical background, I have always been fascinated by languages ever since I had my first taste of foreign culture and languages in Romania when I was about, um... 11 years old or so.  I attended a German school, Deutsches Goethe-Kolleg, for three years and was fluent in German.  Unfortunately, that skill is now a distant memory as I had not used it since, but my fascination for languages remains.

When I returned to Indonesia after college in the summer of 2004, I gave translation a try, initially, as a side income while struggling to find a job "worthy" of my degrees.  However, I could not resist the pull, so in 2007 I decided to take this a bit more seriously: I branched out to interpreting and I also created a brand in order to present myself professionally to prospective clients, which--after several transformation--is now called AKSWARA.  Over a short period of time, I was able to grow my services, my client list, and my network of collaboration.

As of January 2012, I became a full-time freelance translator.  My services now include translation, interpreting, subtitling, and localization.  My clients consist of corporate entities, individuals, as well as nonprofit organizations.
