Hi, my name is Sem and I am a freelancer. My specialties include translating and adapting, editing, and writing. I also do manual illustrations (sketches, watercolor and or acrylic paintings, and paper collages).
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 (English, mostly in Indonesian), my articles 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.
