M: I want to talk about the cellphone that we were discussing about, because this is a discussion group, and since this is a discussion, you can have a different opinion or same opinion with others. It’s okay to have different individual opinions, and you don’t have to get heated up arguing with others. The last discussion was a heated one. Please turn off your cellphones first, because it might interfere with our live recording, and since the recording is using radio waves, your cellphones might disturb the radio waves. So please turn off your cellphones first. Okay, so we were talking about cellphone H, can you give me any comments about this H cellphone, its design, do you like it or not?

R1: I like it
R2: It's simple
R3: (I like) its thinness and its color

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.


I have a resumé that is available for your perusal on LinkedIn
