  5. "My job is started from here."

"My job is started from here."

Translation:Pekerjaanku dimulai dari sini.

August 23, 2018



The English doesn't sound right. I can't figure out how to make it sound better without more context. Like is "from here" referring to a time or a location? Is it was active I would say "My job started here" but it doesn't work in the passive.


i think you're right. while the di-verb construction is probably perfectly fine indonesian, in english the passive voice simply doesn't translate well with the verbs start/ begin/ commence.


Pekerjaan saya = pekerjaanku. My answer is nice.


why is kerjaan saya not accepted?
