Bio

Educated bilingually in
Hong Kong with an MA (distinction) and BA (Hons) in translation, I am excited
to build my freelance career here providing translation service from
Traditional/Simplified Chinese to English and from English to Traditional/Simplified Chinese.

I have 3 years of solid
full-time experience as a professional translato
r in addition to 10 years of
freelance experience
. In my work, besides handling a high volume of
translation and editing tasks and meeting all deadlines,
I benefit hugely from the
feedback and advice provided

by
my senior translation manager, who vets all of my job
assignments
. My philosophy is to strive
for perfection, and my work has been held in high regard by my manager and
teammates.
It is for this reason
that I managed to pass the prestigious DipTrans exam (
https://www.ciol.org.uk/diptrans) with two distinctions and as the best
candidate in Hong Kong
  (https://www.ciol.org.uk/ciol-hong-kong-and-china-visit).

With broad general
knowledge, I am willing to work on different text type
s and subjects. My translation experience includes the
following,

English-to- Chinese

Legal/regulatory texts, press releases, websites, speeches, consultancy
reports, parliamentary papers etc. in public
administration, science, business, psychology, environmental conservation,
criminology

Chinese-to-English
