Accredited Professional Translator (from Chinese to English), Singapore, 2015

I have been providing Chinese-English translation services since 2008, and have decided to take the career further and turn full-time in 2011. In previous incarnations, I was a policy studies researcher and graduate student in the humanities.

In the past few years, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of material, including:
- Advertising copy (transcreation)
- Magazine articles (for media coverage monitoring purposes)
- Academic articles in the humanities and social sciences
- General business (including insurance documents)
- Financial reports
- Interview transcripts
- TV subtitles

I am passionate about language, and about "getting it right" -- it probably is a symptom of having taught Beginner's Mandarin at both collegiate and adult learner levels. I am able to work with both Simplified and Traditional Chinese script. Given that I am a native English speaker, my translation output needs very little proofreading / deciphering before it's good to go!

Academic articles (humanities and social sciences)
