Translation, Adaptation, Proofreading, Editing, Writing

My specialties include translating, editing, adapting and writing. As a translator (English-Indonesian, Indonesian-English, Russian-Indonesian), I have translated and adapted cookbooks, manuals, press releases, websites and applications (apps).

I also love editing and proofreading to make texts more readable. I previously worked as an editor for lifestyle magazines, such as Elle Indonesia and Esquire Indonesia. I have edited various articles and books.

As a writer (mostly in Indonesian), my works have appeared in AutocarElleEsquire, FAOHarper’s Bazaar, Kompas, Media Indonesia and Some of my writings have won competitions.
