Sem’s Services: Translation, Adaptation, Editing, Writing, Illustration

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 AutocarElleEsquire, FAOHarper’s BazaarKompasMinumKopi.com, and Media Indonesia. My articles have won several writing competitions, most recently about sustainable palm oil.
