Hi, my name is Sem and I am a freelancer. I translate, adapt, edit, and write texts. As a translator (English-Indonesian, Russian-Indonesian), I have translated and adapted cookbooks, manuals, press releases, websites, and applications (apps).
I also enjoy making texts which other people wrote more readable. I previously worked as an editor (Indonesian) at lifestyle magazines. I have edited various articles and books.
As a writer and blogger (Indonesian, English), my articles have appeared in many publications, for instance, Elle, FAO, Harper’s Bazaar, Kompas, MinumKopi.com, Media Indonesia, and Yayasan MDPI. My articles have won several writing competitions, most recently about sustainable palm oil.
I am also a maker (I love making paper collages, watercolor and or acrylic paintings, sketches, and pottery). Sometimes, upon request, I do manual illustrations.
Please feel free to contact me regarding my services. Email me semsahala [at] yahoo [dot] com or call me (+62) 813 150 70 110. Thank you.
