To date, I have translated more than 1 000 000 words from English-Malay. My first few projects as a freelancer involved the translation of subtitles for foreign-language videos and television shows, including full-length movies. I have also worked on many other types of materials such as regulatory documents, employee handbooks,promotional materials for consumer goods,survey questionnaires and web content, among others.
I have had two major career switches in my life. I trained as a Medical Laboratory Technologist for six years, learning medical diagnostic techniques in several clinical diisciplines such as Haematology, Clinical Chemistry, Blood banking, Microbiology, Parasitology, Histopathology, Fluids and Excretion testing, Animal Science, Cardiology and Neurophysiology. It was a fascinating field, but soon, I got bored. I then went on to study Nutrition and Community Health at undergraduate level. I served as a Public Health Nutritionist at the Ministry of Health Malaysia for eight years. The scope of my work was in administering and communicating policy matters pertaining to public health, with extra focus on infant and young child nutrition.
