Professional practices AKSWARA endorses's Professional Guidelines (v1.1).
Experienced & Certified Translator and Interpreter
specializing in legal, business, cinema/TV, defense/military, and having a strong background in IT.

These are the principles on which I build my reputation.


I am a translator by profession, not by education. &nbps;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 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 in the summer of 2004 after my post-graduate study, I gave translation a try, initially as a side income while trying to find a job "worthy" of my degrees.  However, I could not resist the pull, and so in 2007 I decided to take translation 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.

I am also a member of HPI (Himpunan Penerjemah Indonesia or Association of Indonesian Translators), which is part of FIT (Fédération Internationale des Traducteurs or International Federation of Translators) network.
