Bio
I am a native speaker of Chinese and a freelance bilingual translator between English and Chinese with experience of almost 11 years and Proz.com Professional Translator Certification. I received a Ph.D. degree in Communication Eng. in 2011. I used to be an engineer and technical translator in a research institute during 2011-2016, specializing in legal & patents and other technical translation in our research team. What's more important, I have a pretty good knowledge of IT, Telecommunications, Automotive, and other technical or engineering fields, with extensive experience in translating materials of related industries, which I think would be very helpful to your projects.
