I have had over twenty-five years of professional experience translating while engaged in university teaching, research, and publishing about comparative political and economic development (China, Japan, France, and Russia), foreign affairs, international business and finance, and comparative philosophy. (Full curriculum vitae available on request.) More recent commercial translation experience includes financial documents and patents, as well.
This background in the field enables translation that is as precise and well-written as the original.
