home based translation for movie/tv subtitles job

Postby mikael » Thu, 24 Jul 2008 11:19 am

Hi! Anyone can give me a direction how to get "freelance translation job" for subtitle in the movie or any TV Production?

Back at home (Jakarta), I usually got "Job" from local TV station to translate their imported programs. I can work them at home- communicate with them via internets- and they pay me per designated job.

I'm very fluently in Bahasa Indonesia and English bit of mandarin. I Heard that Star Movie, AXN or History channel etc...usually need freelance translation from English to Bahasa Indonesia. And they have a base in Singapore and Hongkong. Could any one direct me? Or any translation job? Thx

Yes, but sometimes not a commercial movie, it could be documentary, sport or even boring lecturer.
