About Me

sofieI’m Sophia Jusoff, the owner of MalayExpressions.com. I am based in Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia. Although I am a native Malay speaker, I speak and write English equally well. I understand Bahasa Indonesia too.

In terms of education, I possess an Advanced Diploma in Computer Studies and a Degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. As part of my continuous self-development, I regularly attend translation seminars and language conferences in and around Malaysia.
