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 the PhD degree of 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 related with marketing & technical fields, which I think would be very helpful to your projects.  
  
I have been working as a senior translator and subtitler for many companies like Apple, HTC, Bentley Motors, Mazda Motor, General Motors, Ecolab Inc., Apple Inc., Cisco Inc., International Hotels Group (IHG), Philips, Medtronic Inc., Gengo Inc. and Unbabel Inc., as well as many individual clients. All projects have been evaluated with high quality scores and positive comments.
