Bio
What you’ll get from me:

• Quality work at a reasonable price.
• Accurate translations. My clients remark on the quality of my work. Please see my sample translations to judge for yourself.
• Impeccably written English target texts. I have 25 years’ experience as a professional writer and editor in English language publishing.
• Rigorous checking, editing, and proofreading of every job.
• On-time delivery every time.
• Honesty. I’ll tell you if a job is outside of my expertise. That protects you and me.
• Hard work. I work hard because that’s just who I am. And because I love the work.
• Professionalism. I’m mid-career. Been around the block. I know how to stay professional.
• Friendliness. Work should be enjoyable. I help make it so by being warm and friendly in every interaction.

If you’re curious to know more:

Translation is in my blood. So is traversing multiple cultures. My father was a Chinese <> English translator as far back as I can remember. My family lived on a US military base in Okinawa, Japan, and most of our neighbors were Chinese <> English translators. So I grew up hearing constantly about the art of translation and localization. Often my siblings and I were even given little translation quizzes.

All my life I’ve been Chinese inside the home and American outside the home. Navigating between cultures is second nature for me.

After a lifetime of informal cross-cultural education as well as formal Chinese language classes from elementary through post-college—including intensive training at the Taipei Language Institute—I was able to put my knowledge and sensibilities to work as a freelance Chinese > English translator.

I translate with great excitement. And humility. I bring a lot, but I'm also constantly learning.

I hope to work with many of you.
