I have a strong commitment to quality and I know how to create a fluent translation, whether it's with legal-formal, informal, technical, or creative.

From birth, I have lived in Indonesia for 32 years. Now, I've been living in the USA for 8 years, so my English is well polished by living among native English speakers.
Meanwhile, I actively updating my Indonesian language knowledge online with HPI (Association of Indonesian Translators) friends, with reading Indonesian online newspapers, watching Indonesian online TV and of course with full time working on Indonesian translation/editing/proofreading/transcreation materials.
My Indonesian language level meets and exceeds the requirements for publishing/company/legal translation projects.

I will standby in Central Time Zone (UTC-5) while most Indonesian translators/proofreaders in Indonesia are sleeping :)
Also, I have extensive knowledge and understanding of Indonesian/US/European idioms, cultures & customs. I make sure that my translations are properly localized.

I also have a team of Voice Over (all voices) with me!
