Helmy berjasMy name is Helmy Ismail Sani. I am an English-Indonesian translator with a Proz Certified Pro Certificate and adequate experience specializing in (but not limited to) marketing, business and finance. I have two bachelor degrees majoring in English Letters (focusing on linguistics) and Islamic business law. Besides, I also have a master degree majoring in Islamic Finance and Banking.

Since 2005, I had begun to cope with translation by translating any kinds of document while completing my bachelor degree. Hence, I have been accostumed to and familiar with many fields of expertise. In 2008, I started to translate English books to Indonesian for local publishers. So far, I have translated several English books most of which have been published by local publishers. In 2010, I started to work with international clients and I have so far worked with several translation agencies from Asia, Europe, Afrika and America. Punctuality and quality are my priority.

Some books and projects I have dealt with are as follows:

  • The Mesmerist (EN-IN) by Barbara Ewing, published by Maroon, Jakarta
  • Ready, Fire Aim (EN-IN) by Michael Masterson, published by Maroon, Jakarta
  • How Did I Get so Busy? (EN-IN) By Valerie Burton, published by Diva Press, Jogjakarta
  • Shut Up and Listen! (EN-IN) by Theo Theobald and Cary Cooper, published by Diva Press, Jogjakarta
  • Change Your Life with NLP (EN-IN) by Lindsey Agness, published by Diva Press, Jogjakarta
  • How to Be Superhero Business (EN-IN) by Sean Wise, published by Diva Press, Jogjakarta
  • Acupuncture (EN-IN) by Michael Nightingale, published by Diva Press, Jogjakarta
  • Islam and Civilization (EN-IN) by Khwaja Kamaluddin, published by Ahmadiyah Movement Publishing Department
In 2010, I decided to go international and be a full-time translator. I then joined two big translation portals: ProZ and Translatorscafe. Since then, I have worked with several agencies from Asia, Europe and America. Now, I have completed many translation projects for them.
