English to Chinese: Political Study (Traditional Chinese)
Source text - English Abstract
China’s role in international peacekeeping has greatly expanded in the Hu Jintao era and become a significant contributor to peacekeeping operations (PKOs) in Africa. The importance of the study is expressed in the view that peacekeeping intervention is a tool that strengthens or realizes policy goals in the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL), the UN Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO), and the UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID). China has considerable interests at stake in Africa, whether to promote economic cooperation or gain access to natural resources. In order to maintain these efforts, it is imperative that a secure and stable environment is created, not only to maintain diplomatic relations with its African partners, but also to give expression to the harmonious worldview and peaceful development concepts, which rose to prominence under the presidency of Hu Jintao. With this in mind, the purpose of this study is to examine the extent to which peacekeeping intervention contributes to China’s relations with these countries. Two models are employed to shed light on this thesis. The rational actor model (RAM) developed by Graham Allison is used to explain the goals for each country, the options considered to reach the goals, the consequences or outcomes of choice that will ensure if a particular option is chosen and selecting that option whose consequences rank highest in the leadership’s payoff function. However, the leadership in policy formulation does not always act in a unitary fashion and oftentimes needs the input of governmental actors to produce results in decisionmaking. Therefore, the bureaucratic politics model (BPM) of Allison indicates the bargaining, influencing and compromising positions of the bureaucracy that reinforced the rational decisions of the leadership. The main findings are that peacekeeping intervention adds value to China’s goals, serve as mechanism to facilitate cooperation, and regarding the role of the bureaucracy, reinforces the resolve of the leadership in sending troops to the mission areas.

I am a native Chinese and have lived in both China and the United States of America (USA) for decades, and earned my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in China and Ph.D. in USA. I have a very good mastery of both Chinese (mandarin, simplified, traditional, and Cantonese) and English, and have been translating in this pair of languages my whole life for my education (through Ph.D.), work (scientific), and in my daily life. I have a doctoral in science and work experience in different fields for more than 40 years. I have expert knowledge in the earth and environmental science and technology and have published many books and articles of technical and scientific research both in Chinese and English. These expert knowledge and skills will benefit me in difficult, technical translations.
Ph.D. in Soil and Water Science, University of Florida, USA
M.S. in Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Agricultural University, China
B.S. in Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry, Agricultural University, China
In China, 1970 – 1985, teacher in high school and lecturer in university, taught courses of Chemistry, Soil and Agricultural Chemistry, and Crop Nutrition and Fertilization, etc. Conducted research in agriculture, fertilizer, and plant nutrient and published research papers.
In USA, 1985 – present, research associate and senior scientist in university and in state and county government agencies, and also an independent consultant. Worked in the fields of laboratory chemical analysis, agriculture, environment regulation and protection, ecosystems, geochemistry, soils, wetlands, waterways, drinking water production and wastewater treatment, etc. Writing research and technical papers, reports, applications, proposals, presentation materials is an important part of my job.
My first translation from English to Chinese, which was a research article, was published in生态译丛 33 years ago (in 1980). Since then I have been translating numerous articles and reference papers with this pair of languages for use in my education and work. Since 2013, I have joined some translation companies and become the Certified Translator of some companies. As a freelancer, I have translated many projects.
