As a native Chinese translator, with 20 years of experience in translation, I am specialized in the fields of advertising literature, copywriting, maritime law, contract, computer software, medical, pharmaceutical, telecommunications, bio-tech, etc.

As a translator:
I am a truly versatile translator. Operating in the United States, I am proficient in both Simplified Chinese Characters and Traditional Chinese Characters. In the past 20 years, English has been my daily language. My strong communication skills and understanding of Chinese and English as well as cultural differences enable me to produce outstanding translations for my clients.

As a graphic designer:
I am a skilled graphic designer and translation text formatter with all the needed software programs to handle almost ALL of the Asian languages. Expert of EPS, PostScript and PDF file formats. One of the many products we can provide is that we can engrave the translations in most languages onto the plates of many different materials. For viewing my sample works, please click on HERE Ads localization and copy writing:
The advertising companies, graphic designers and printing shops highly enjoy working with me, because I am their perfect link between the raw Asian text and the finalized efiles that are produced ready for printing or multimedia.

As a voice-talent:
Experienced voice-talent in Mandarin Chinese. I have dubbed over 60 videos and CDs. In 2002, I managed voice-over projects for the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) in Mandarin Chinese, Korean and Vietnamese. In 2003, I helped to produce the Chinese translation and voice-over QA for the video demos of Intel Centrino computers. For the California Elections in 2005 and 2006, I was the Mandarin voice of touch-screen voter’s ballots. For listening to Kevin Yang's voice sample taken from an Intel's project in 2006, please click here. For listening to my voice in a finalized flash demo about the DLP technology, please visit the company website of Texas Instruments, Inc. by clicking here, then click on the top yellow play demo button (进入演示) in the left blue pane.

Operating on both Mac and PC:
I am a skilled Mac and PC user. Mac is sort of like my First Lady and PC is my concubine. A hardworking and honest man with Asian flare.
