I have been working in and out of Indonesia since 1975 and have covered a massive range of topics and subject matter. I am now settled in Dorset in the South West of England with my wife Dina. We work together as a team. Dina has translated books and poems and during the last five years has been my partner in translating many subjects from legal matters to company reports.

I passed the Metropolitan Police Test many years ago obtaining a distinction in Consecutive Interpreting.

In January 2007 I was awarded a Commendation by the Metropolitan Police for outstanding work with the Sapphire Team.

Dina Oktaviani

Dina, who is an Indonesian national, a native speaker, is now a full Member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists.  She is an extremely capable translator and interpreter with a massive vocabulary.

We offer a professional and confidential service at competitive rates and work both ways from Bahasa Indonesia to English and vice versa.

We will carry out a thorough and accurate job when on any assignment meeting an agreed deadline.

Our clients have the advantage of having the translations we do for them edited first by a native speaker, either in English or in Bahasa Indonesia, before the finished work is returned.

Assignments accepted include:

– Translation from English to Indonesian and Indonesian to English
Consecutive and Simultaneous Interpreting both ways
– Subtitling film or video
– Voice overs
– Transcription
– Editing
– Proof reading

We offer an email backup service should there be any queries post assignment.
