Bio
About me

Language is my passion. My major in University is Psychology and Teaching Chinese As A Second Language. Before translating, I had worked as a Language consultant and instructor. Since then, I have translated for Marketing projects, Business Plans, and Art exhibitions & articles. I am now based in France, continuing to work on translation projects. I have been working as a translator for 7 years now and I enjoy every minute of it.

Comments from Clients

I have worked with Amanda Zhao for over four years on several translation projects and highly recommend her services. Her level of professionalism, work ethic and commitment to excellence are invaluable. Time and time again she has dedicated herself to going beyond simply translating words, and trans-created all content to ensure the meaning, tone and style are not lost in translation. Additionally, Amanda has a high EQ—she’s a great listener, and is able to effectively navigate cross-culturally. Always a pleasure to work with, I would recommend Ms. Zhao to anyone in need of a professional, timely, accurate translator.

Having Amanda ZHAO translate several of my music related articles as well as liner notes for my record was not only enjoayble, it was a relief. A relief knowing that not only did her background in music greatly help in translating my words, but also a relief in knowing that Amanda really respected the intention of what I had written and was always forthright if anything was unclear to her. Trying to explain the inspiration for a song can be hard enough to put into words in the first place but to then translate such nuanced material?... Very few would have the patience. Amazing work Amanda! Thank you!
