I was recently appointed by Kompas Gramedia
(the largest media conglomerate in Indonesia) to translate, edit and ‘proofread’ as they credited… a book titled:
Jerusalem: Sanctity, Conflict, and Final Judgment
– written by Trias Kuncahyono
Pleasantly it has become a national best seller apparently. Something to be mighty chuffed about, you know.. show me mum and what nots.
Was quite an interesting process, both a mix of joy and frustration since translation essentially demands you to rewrite pretty much everything, and let me tells youz, it was a lot of writing.
All in all though, this is something I’d love to do more of… Hint Hint…. You know, having a chance to learn something totally outside ones realm, being able to feed an obsession (ego) for writing and being recognised for it. Inspires me to pursue associated avenues.
Feel Inclined to check it out… Click on the pic to visit their purchase page… FYI I don’t receive any royalties so this isn’t a sales pitch.
