I am a qualified Indonesian-English and Chinese-English translator and pride myself on completing projects with speed, accuracy and professionalism. I possess several academic qualifications related to translation and linguistics that have allowed me to explore the theory and linguistic nuances of my languages in greater detail. However, having lived in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore for 10 years, I also have a valuable understanding of cultural practices and local colloquialisms. I am now a permanent resident of Australia.

INDONESIAN: 'Colloquialisms Vs. Formal Language'

Informal Indonesian language (often known as 'Bahasa Gaul') is the form of language predominantly spoken in urban areas and also serves as the language medium for modern Indonesian film, popular magazines, song lyrics and many television programs. Although 'Bahasa Gaul' is technically only a manipulated form of Bahasa Indonesia, the fact that it varies significantly from standard Indonesian has caused many a headache among some translators/ editors. However, after gaining a thorough understanding and fluency in this form of Indonesian, I now specialize in texts and subtitling work featuring 'Bahasa Gaul' or language deviating from Standard Bahasa Indonesia.
