Awaiting Opportunities for Long-term Cooperation, Especially in Medical and Pharmaceutical Fields

Majority of my work in translation focuses on medical and pharmaceutical fields, with documents ranging from medical records, clinical trial documents, to medical/pharmaceutical journal articles. I have also worked on translations in diverse fields, including marketing, engineering/manufacturer-related contents, legal, and general corporate documents. 

In addition, I am hoping to expand my career horizons by embarking on review work and translation involving subtitling. It is my short-term goal to begin collaboration with any clients who are looking for entry-level reviewers or subtitlers. If you have a position in these fields, I would love to discuss with you regarding potential collaboration.

If you are looking for long-term cooperation with a linguist with great potentials, look no further! Please do not hesitate to contact for more information.
