Bio
A passionate, resourceful, and detail oriented freelance Chinese to English translator with over 5 years of translation experience. I am a native speaker of English and have lived for over 7 years in Taipei. I translate texts of Simplified, Traditional and Classical Chinese into high quality English. When translating I strive to both embrace the spirit of the original Chinese work and create a seamless translation which reads as an authentic piece should.

I completed an MA in C-E Translating, and T&I Diploma at Newcastle University (UK), where I received training from Linguists and translators at the top of their respective fields. I am also a full member of the Chartered Association of Linguists (MCIL), and a Certified PRO on ProZ.com.

I have three specialist areas of translation: literature, art, and video game localisation (UK) localization (US).

- I have an interest in Chinese poetry and literature. I have translated a broad selection of poetry and literary texts, including tales from Chinese myths and legends. I am currently in the process of reading about Taiwanese aboriginal myths and legends. I have currently translated a collection of 39 poems by Wang Guozhen which have been published in three books.

- I have a solid background in the visual arts (BA in Fine Art), and have exhibited my own work in galleries and public spaces. I am very interested in Chinese art, especially landscape and ink and color paintings. I have translated several art texts, some of which have been published, and other used at art auctions.

- I have conducted around 30 years of research into video games, and have worked with industry leaders to localize (US)/localise (UK) well over 20 games. Many of which are available on iOS, Android and PC. This has involved translating and proofreading close to 3 million characters.
