Good morning/afternoon/evening, everyone :) How do you want to get your message across? I would love to utilize my English and Indonesian skills to help you on your projects, whether it's translating, editing, proofreading, anything to do with books, articles, websites, mobile applications, and quite possibly any written stuff. I started by doing translation, editing and proofreading work for my college professors and now you can say I'm addicted! It's a fun job that still allows me to grow and learn every day. While I have experience in writing, I find that I'm most productive in an editing role. It's every freelancer's dream to get great reviews on their work, so I can only hope you'll give me a chance to prove my worth. Do not ever hesitate to browse the reviews on my profile page :) Cheers, Dinna
