Simplyasep.com Go International

simplyasep.com  Since over a period of around 10 years posting the articles on my personal blog which focusing on the Indonesian friends, I was thinking of the idea of broaden my  knowledge and horizon to more people all across the world.  This sounds crazy but I think its time for me to be internationally recognized.t

Perhaps some of you will probably have the wrong impression about me.  I think that is okay. There are lots of reasons why I changed my mind about this. I have been thinking over and over again about this stuff, including thinking of the negative and positive effects altogether.


I am pleased that I have received so sweet welcome and expression of friendships from my Indonesian friends so far.  From local communities, discussion group, school friends, and my neighbor partners and many others.   I have received so much love from my Indonesian friends which I will not forget for the rest of my life. 

I can confirm that I will always put my Indonesian friends above all however NOT in the blog content but in the real friendship over the Whatsap, email or even calling on the phone.

Friendship With European Countries
This can be one of my best reasons why I changed my primary language on my personal blog from Indonesia into English.   I would like to get new friends and  friendships all across the world and the idea of that cool plan is in progress now. 

Starting from my new friend, Ana Mieszkowska from Polandia which I am trying to get in touch very often with her, and maintain contact with her awesome blog.   She will be the first non English friend who reply and write back to me.   She is beautiful, isn't she?   You may visit to her blog anytime you feel like.

This is good start for me to go through their International friends from many different countries such as Russia, Croatia, France and many other countries which mostly NOT from English speaking countries.


Second, about the language,  However I am not really that good in speaking English both spoken and written so far, but I have been able to use the English language as part of international relationship.   

With my standard of English, I have had a positive attitude about the language , and I have been able to make friendship with all friends from English speaking countries.   I have learned the language over a period of around 12 years and I always try improve the English language in every way.     English is always be my fave language I am using now to communicate with friends all over the world in general.

Third, I must learn another foreign languages in addition to English.  This meant that I have been contacted with many tools which can help me translate the NON English language into the target language. 

For example If I would like to discuss about something with my Poland or Russia, then I will certainly use the tools , such as Google Translate, to help me translate the language they are understanding.   Do you think I will depend on the Google Translate to help me understand and write them? I think so in particular

Fourth, I really hope my Indonesia friends will understand the decision I have made like this. Hope they are not getting mad and fading away from me. As a prove that I love Indonesia language is about the content of my blog now is completed with the Indonesian version. In other words, Indonesian articles or posting in Indonesian language is always part of the content as well. Don't worry about that.


The result of  I have received from the Google Translate can be very funny.  That is because of the structure of the original language (for example English) which being translated into the target one (Poland) can be misunderstood and grammatically incorrect but the MEANING in general can be comprehended and understood.  How about you? Did you use the Google Translate to communicate with non English speaking people just like I did?  How was it?
