Bio
Services

I am a full-time freelance translator working between Chinese and English. Chinese is my native language, while English is a language I have been working with intensively for decades since my childhood. My favorite practice is providing extensive, quality and one-stop services for a small group of clients in limited fields.

I started part-time translation service in 1995, and full-time service in 2002.

I focus on providing premium-quality translation for customers who really need it and are ready to pay for it.

Language pairs

Simplified Chinese (Mandarin) / Traditional Chinese (Mandarin) -> English
English -> Simplified Chinese (Mandarin) / Traditional Chinese (Mandarin)
Simplified Chinese (Mandarin) <-> Traditional Chinese (Mandarin, for Taiwan market)

If a text is clearly targeted ONLY at the Hong Kong market, or is targeted ONLY at the Taiwan market but out of my fields, please find a local translator/linguist, otherwise you can count on my version.

Translations

Experienced technical translator (Chinese-English) with focuses on IT, (tele)communications, machinery, electric and electronics, automobile and relevant industrial technologies. Besides, I also translate business documents such as company profiles, contracts, certificates, training books, conference schedules, financial/tax/accounting documents, as well as materials on general topics.

Hundreds of successful deliveries since 1995.

Typical clients included giants such as Cisco, UN (United Nations), IBM, Motorola, P&G, Lockheed Martin, Siemens, Nokia, Sony, GE, Check Point, Bosch, Schneider, Huawei, SAP, Saint-Gobain as well as governmental organizations and hundreds of other SME and personal clients. More than half of my translations were related to sciences, technologies and industries, but I also accept translation jobs on other topics from established clients.

Source Languages Other Than Chinese/English

I am now exploring some new source languages as a personal interest. Please understand, however, I have no specific plan to accept real jobs from any of these new source languages into Chinese or English at this time. My working languages are still Chinese and English.

CV/More Details

I have placed most important information I guess you may want to know in this "About me" section. A more detailed CV (actually my service book) is available for logged-in users.

Some samples can be found in the Portfolio section of this profile (last updated in January 2009). Some more samples from English to Simplified Chinese and from English to Traditional Chinese are available upon request.
