Translation is not the exclusive skill of those majoring in language, specific area knowledge and experiences are equally important, and of course, plus the love to the translation. This makes translation not only full of fun but also full of challenge and magic to me. While Chinese is deemed to be one of the most complicated language in the world, English is now the most popular language in the world. Translation between these two languages really give you wonderful experiences, and sometimes, big marvel. I'd like to keep going on with it and share the same fun with you all.
Following are some of my past experiences in my specific area?though I did not have too much experiences as a full-time translator:
