(3) Localization spotlight: the Chinese localization team

This month's spotlight is on the the Chinese localization team:

Yulian Wang, the team leader of the Chinese L10n team, had this to say about the team's work:

"ProZ.com is a wonderful platform for language service professionals. Localizing it into Chinese may help native Chinese speakers understand it better, thus may expand their potential client resources. I am glad to be a part of the dedicated Chinese localization team."

If you are a ProZ.com member and you would like to join a localization team in your native language, contact site staff to volunteer.
