Bio
I am an American who lived and worked in Taiwan for ten years, the last six of which were as a freelance writer, editor, and translator. I have six stable clients in Taiwan, three publishers, two translation companies, and a hospital, for whom I translate, edit, and write. Some of the writing I do, specifically the books I have written for one of the publishers, is bilingual. That is, I write the English and then translate it myself. My translation work, which is what I am most interested in, has overall been the least plentiful of the three. I registered here because I would like to change that.

I have the utmost confidence in my ability to translate Chinese into English, but the opposite direction, English into Chinese, I do not have that same confidence simply because Chinese is not my native language. Thus, for projects that require English to Chinese translation, I employ one of the Taiwanese freelancers I know to proofread my Chinese copy. That is not something I charge my clients for. It is something I pay out of pocket to ensure my English-to-Chinese translations are 100% localized, not the 80% or 90% they would be if I submitted my work without having a native speaker proofread it.

I am the consummate professional and will not sacrifice the quality of my work for anything. To speak to this, all of my clients have worked with me for three or more years, and they have never once contracted work out to another freelancer when I have been available.
