A career in the language industry spanning more than 20 years and a list of over 100 translation books speak volume for Istiani’s professional credentials. Istiani is an HPI-certified English-Indonesian translator. Apart from growing up, studying, and living in the cultural heart of Java, Istiani’s BA in English at the Yogyakarta-based Universitas Gadjah Mada has paved her way for working on projects involving three languages: English, Indonesian, and Javanese.
Istiani offers translation, editing, subtitling, and localisation services in the English-Indonesian and English-Javanese language combination to domestic and overseas clients from different industries and types of organization. Her fields of translation/localisation include automotive, game, human resources, IT, product or training manual, marketing as well as hotel and tourism. Istiani’s familiarity with a variety of CAT tools–such as SDL Trados, MemoQ, SmartCat, CrowdIn, and Memsource–helps boost her productivity, maintain consistency of terminology, and ensure the quality of both the process and result of her works.
