Hi, my name is Sem Purba and I am a freelancer. My specialties include translating and adapting, editing and writing.
As a translator (English-Indonesian, Russian-Indonesian), I have translated and adapted cookbooks, manuals, press releases, websites and applications (apps).
I love editing texts too. I enjoy making texts people made more readable. I previously worked as an editor (Indonesian) at lifestyle magazines. I have edited various articles and books.
As a writer (mostly in Indonesian), my works have appeared in Autocar, Elle, Esquire, FAO, Harper’s Bazaar, Kompas, MinumKopi.com and Media Indonesia. My articles have won several writing competitions, most recently about sustainable palm oil.
