Bio

Hi everyone,

My name is Chuhan Zhu. I am a native Chinese (Mandarin) speaker who has received professional trainings from a NAATI-accredited course in Translating and Interpreting. I am also a member of the Australian Institute of Interpreters & Translators (AUSIT).

I grew up in China where my family are living. I'm currently residing in Australia with my partner's family. I decided to become a translator and interpreter in 2020, after which I joined the Graduate Diploma program in Translating and Interpreting at RMIT University in Australia. I'm one of the top students in the program with a 3.75/4 GPA, and I'm expected to graduate in June 2021.

While Chinese is my mother tongue, I achieved an overall band score 7.5 at IELTS exams in 2016 (L 7.5, R 8.0, W 8.0, S 7.0). Now I use Chinese (Mandarin) and English every day in my life. More importantly, I consider myself as multicultural, which is an essential quality for a reliable translator and interpreter. Because translating/interpreting is not only about transferring words; it is more about transferring culture and ideas.

With my professional skill set, I am able to translate a wide variety of texts including business website, brochure, video subtitles, game content, social media content, legal document, etc.

I am also able to use CAT tools such as memoQ, SDL Trados and Wordfast. Wisely using cutting-edge technologies increases my productivity and improves the quality of my work.

Additionally, I can also help you with graphic design, subtitling and video editing. I am proficiently in using Aegisub, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premierer Pro/Photoshop/InDesign/Lightroom, as well as Microsoft Word/Excel/Powerpoint.

I'm highly aware that it is critical for translation to stick to the original meaning and function of the source text. To ensure a high standard of work, I dedicate a sufficient amount of research in the relevant field to ensure the translation accuracy, and details are closely examined before a satisfying end product is presented. Most importantly, confidentiality is respected and deadlines are always met.

Let's get in touch!

Best Regards,
Chuhan
