I am a freelance translator for English>Malay>English and have more than 15 years of experience. I graduated
with a Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering from Widener University, Chester, PA, USA. After that, I
worked with Siemens Semiconductor (M) as a QA Engineer. Currently, I am working with Mitsui High-tec (M)
a Japanese company also as a QA Engineer. In both companies most of the documents used are in their own
thus we have to translate them to English and Malay for our usage. The documents range from technical,
training, environment, safety, procedures , email etc.
