A native American English speaker with a BA and MA in the liberal arts, I have studied Mandarin Chinese formally for 5 years, including a year of graduate coursework in the language and 1.5 years of on-the-ground experience.

Since entering the world of freelance translation, I have provided academic translations on a number of subjects ranging from Confucian thought to Qing dynasty literature. I am passionate about conveying the style and message of the original text while ensuring that the translation is accessible and reads naturally to native English speakers.

With a professional background in the energy and public policy fields, I am also able to produce policy and business oriented translations in these and related fields.

I am also available to work on the weekends and on a short timescale for time-sensitive jobs.

Feel free to reach out to contact me for a quote. I would love to learn more about your organization and your needs.
