I have always believed that a capable translator must also be an exceptional writer.

Before becoming a full-time freelance translator, I have more than 12 years of experience as an editor-in-chief and a news and features journalist in the English language.

As a former editor and publisher of the business magazine, Launch Asia and Business Horizons Philippines, as well as a former news editor for the London-based Financial Times Information (Phils.) Inc., I possess a powerful command of the English and Chinese languages as well as sensitivity to the nuances of both the source and target text.

This has become my competitive strength in my 10 years of being a translator for the language pairs, Chinese > English and English <> Filipino. The end result of my translation is a faithful, significant and elegant piece of writing that achieves its purpose with its target audience.

Furthermore, my diverse hands-on experience in business start-up, publishing, marketing, public relations, business management, finance and investment, politics and governance had also endowed me with a penetrating grasp of each industry's unique languages and terminologies.

As a professional editor and translator, I have also never turned in a job late in my whole translation career and I always make sure every piece of work is well-researched, well-written, well-presented, and well-crafted.
