HPI-certified English<>Indonesian Translator
Sadiqah Begum, more commonly known by her nickname ‘Dina’, has much to offer in terms of translation expertise and service. Dina is an HPI-certified English-to-Indonesian translator and has for more than 10 years offered translation, review/editing, and subtitling services to domestic and global clients. A native Sundanese, she also works on English-to-Sundanese translation.
Dina benefits greatly from her major in librarianship at Bogor Agricultural University and over 15-year professional experience in the British Council Jakarta. She gained a working knowledge of business, education, human resources, market research, management, travel, and tourism terminology. Translating more than 80 books and particularly novels for Indonesian publishers attests not only to Dina’s passion for literature but also to her special interests and skills. Moreover, Dina is familiar with market-friendly computer-assisted translation and subtitling tools such as SDL Trados, Wordfast, MemoQ, and Aegisub. This, notwithstanding, does not quench Dina’s thirst for knowledge. She is now pursuing a degree in translation studies at the Indonesia Open University.
