About me
I've been involved with Chinese culture, history, and language since 2002. I have many years of Mandarin Chinese language experience and have lived in China on several occasions in different cities. I have also worked as a tour guide and interpreter in various regions for English speakers. I've worked on translation projects ranging from documents on ethnic Tibetan-Khampa communities to product descriptions of mining equipment and organic agriculture/sales. Having worked as a certified technician for Apple, Inc., I also have experience in the field of information technology.

As English is my native language, I am very proficient at translating documents from Chinese into eloquent and concise renditions in English. While capable of translating into Chinese, I prefer working on transforming Chinese documents into my native language.

I am currently staying in Iceland. Iceland provides an ideal environment for environmentally friendly freelance translation work. With almost 99% of its energy and heating coming from either renewable geothermal or hydro power, I feel comfortable stating that I'm one of the few translators out there that can provide a finished Chinese to English translation that has a small carbon-footprint.
