Hello Potential Clients and Fellow Freelancers,
My name is Haslina Abdul Hardy but you can call me Haslina. I am an English to Malay translator. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Translation and Interpretation in 2006 from Universiti Sains Malaysia.
Six months after finishing my degree, I got a job in the government sector. In my eighth year I started part-timing as a freelance translator. Now, I've taken the leap in my life and resigned from the sector to be a full-time translator beginning October 2017.
Reminiscing back to my childhood, I realized that I have always wanted to be in this field. In primary school, when asked about my ambition when I grow up, I clearly remember saying I wanted to be an interpreter. Even the teacher was perplexed on what kind of job it was. Well, here I am, not an interpreter but a translator - the same field nevertheless. And a field more known now.
