Bio
I have 22 years of working experiences as an English lecturer, translator/interpreter in the fields of environmental engineering, entertainment (movie and TV), literature, and pedagogy covering China, UK, USA and Canada. I have developed excellent bilingual language skills (English and Mandarin Chinese). Here are some of my representative accomplishments:
- Translation of poems and lyrics for "Songs of the Sea - The Regatta Suite", a symphonic poem composted for Beijing 2008 Olympic Game;
- Translation of TV documentary narrations in the series of “Discovery of China", a HD series simulcast on Shanghai Education channel and Direct TV. Topics cover Chinese history, culture, and political geography.
- Translation of "Yellow Leaves, Red Mansion" into English, a new history musical drama by Wang Haiping in "Goddess of the Luo River: Selected Plays by Wang Haiping," (Published in March 2014, Xlibris)
- Have been engaged in movie/TV subtitle translation and proofreading for four years. Some of the movies I worked on, either translation or proofreading, are as follows:
