About me

My Qualifications

After receiving my Masters from Columbia University, I spent over six years in China studying Chinese business and marketing and working as a professional translator. I have translated over 800,000 words of marketing and advertising materials for:

Automotive and IT companies

Luxury goods retailers

Real estate firms

Universities and educational companies

Municipality government bureaus

I have also worked on website and app localization for international retailers of products including cosmetics, watches, baby products and TCM, and I have two academic articles published in American journals in the humanities and natural science.

Overseas Professional Experience

I have done extensive translation, editing and and voiceover work for the informational and promotional materials of the Gansu Province Railway Bureau. In addition, in 2015, I served as translator and interpreter for the U.S. Department of State Office of Global Education visit to Xi'an, China.

Subtitling Experience

I provide accurate subtitling that is this targeted at your core audience and sets the correct tone based on genre, editing and story-telling modes. I have been the primary subtitles for over 40 hours of Phoenix TV documentaries, news programs and history specials, I have worked on several subtitling projects for Vice on HBO, and I was the primary subtitler for a 2017 feature film that screened at the Berlin International Film Festival. I use Annotation Edit and have experience with MacCaption. Genres I have covered include:


feature films

News programs

TV dramas/sitcoms


My specialties are marketing, business and media translations. My passion for translation and for China is evident in my work and in my blog on contemporary Chinese society. Please message me if you are interested in collaborating on a project - I look forward to working with you!
