I have more than 10 years experiences in translating and writing journal manuscripts and abstracts, R&D quests, book chapters from English>Malay, Jawi (Malay in Arabic letter)>English. Technical fields include science, engineering, medical and IT. Due to strong interest in translation, I have switched into online mode and diversify my specialization into medical, IT and software, media, technology/product promotions, social science and general field. I have collaborated with different companies locally and internationally in which the translation fields are varied from multimedia subtitles, copywriting, product promotion, education and social science. Daily output between 1500 to 3000 words depending to the subject and difficulty of the source text. Currently appointed as Karyawan DBP (Writer Membership for Institute of Language and Learning of Malaysia) and have passed Malaysian Institute of Translation and Books (ITBM) translation test which enable me to collaborate with ITBM as their part-time translator.

Translation memories cum glossaries for:
- Science, Engineering, IT and Medical/Pharmaceuticals (more than 2,000,000++ words)

Trained as Researcher make me really comfortable in understanding materials in R&D activity. Therefore, safety data sheet or namely MSDS is my daily checked text as well as journals in which it is needed for publication of academic finding. In addition, reviewing (i.e proofreading and editing) is also one of my strength and the materials that have been entrusted for reviewing process since 2007 include scientific journals from Wiley Blackwell such as Polymer Composites, Applied Polymer Science, Polymer Engineering and Science, Physical Science USM, Asian journals etc. Various materials subject and measurement especially for research work that have been reviewed include materials and technology for intellectual property and patenting. Up to now, more than 50 academic manuscripts have been reviewed and the numbers are keeping on increasing.
