I'm a freelance translator based in China. I take this as my professional because I like translation. Besides, I can also just stay at home getting in touch with the outside world. It feels very great when you see one day your translation is put into use somewhere. I like this feeling. Therefore, I always try to do a great job for my every translation, 'cause it would be a shame if others see it not in the right way some day in the future.

I like the prococess of translation, through which I can learn lots of things I don't know before. And it's also a way of trouble-shooting - you have to face many difficulties that you can't avoid, but you just have to face them and overcome them one by one. At last, I think translation is just like a sole-fighting - you have to fight with many hidden anemies yourself. You may not see the anemies, but they are indeed there. Therefore, you have to find them out one by one and put them down, otherwise you will just wait yourself to be killed.

Currently I'm working for an Amiercan localization company as a contracted translator, and an India translation company as well as many others. I think as a freelance translator, I may have to get myself employed by as many companies as possible. Meanwhile, I'm also looking for my own direct clients. I believe I can do it. It's just a matter of trust - so please trust me just as the way I trust you.
