I am a Chinese to English freelancer with 4+ years of experience.
I primarily focus on subtitle translation for films and TV shows.
My secondary specialization is general business documents.
In my particular market, due to the disproportionate number of Chinese natives who speak English and English natives who speak Chinese, there are a lot of what I would consider to be less than professional translation practices relatively commonplace. Most agencies resort to either post-editing (machine translation + native English proofreaders) or finding cheap Chinese natives with poor grasp of English to translate + native English proofreaders.
I no longer accept proofreading assignments, as I am opposed to the practice mentioned above. As an alternative, I focus on providing premium translations, from my second language to my native language. In all agencies I've worked with, I've been rated very highly in terms of accuracy and fluency (heavy emphasis on 100% native sounding translations).
