My name is Ferdina Siregar.

I'm an English-Indonesian translator/interpreter and also an English lecturer.

I've been in the language industry for more than 15 years, started from being an English teacher, then a translator, an interpreter, and a University lecturer. I also have other past work experiences, i.e. as a Social Compliance Reviewer, an Insurance Compliance Manager, and a Financial Planner.

All these various experiences and with the fact that both my bachelor and master degrees are in Financial Management have made me fully acquainted with specific topics and terms related to accounting, banking, finance, investment, legal, and insurance. Furthermore, being an interpreter has introduced me to even broader subjects, such as waste management, telecommunication, power, oil and gas, pre-and-post disaster management, forest/drug crime, and FCPA investigations.

Services offered are as follows:

1. Translation, Editing, and Proofreading;

2. Simultaneous and Consecutive Interpreting;

3. Note-taking (to provide Proceeding - full sentence, not Verbatim);

4. Transcription; and

5. Subtitling.

Furthermore, to enhance my translation productivity and quality, I'm using CAT tools such as SDL Trados and MemoQ. My standard daily production for translation is 2000-2500 words.

I'm also actively involved in the Association of Indonesian Translators (Himpunan Penerjemah Indonesia - HPI) and often participate in HPI’s professional development programs, which not only hone my translation skills, but also expand my professional network. These have led me to be an HPI Certified Indonesian-English translator (conferred in May 2016).

I've managed to reach clients, direct and agencies, from aboard with satisfactory feedback. So, if you need assistance in any of the services I offered, don't hesitate to contact me! :)

Warm regards,

Ferdina Siregar
